Demonstration School Visits

Demonstration School Visits

The Network for College Success and the McDougal Family Foundation, in collaboration with Chicago Public Schools, selects outstanding high schools to serve as our Demonstration Schools each year. These schools will promote the transfer of innovation and effective practices to schools locally, regionally, and nationally. The overarching goal is to speed the process of high school improvement to support greater numbers of students graduating ready for college.

NCS organizes Demonstration School Visits throughout the year where participants will visit classrooms or school meetings, observe practices, and debrief their observations with colleagues. School Visits may be virtual or in person.

Registration for SY21 is now closed. Thank you for your interest!
