Learn more about our work from the people who lead Kids First Chicago.
We bring parents to the decision-making table, providing transparent and digestible information to fuel their engagement and supporting them as they lead work to transform Chicago schools.
We work with parents to address the root causes of inequitable education outcomes and partner with CPS, the City of Chicago, and others in implementing solutions supported by families and the facts.
Share the Facts
We offer independent, transparent data about Chicago schools so all families can evaluate schools’ performance and their kids’ needs as well as participate in decision-making.
Where We Engage
We focus our community engagement in the city’s South and West Sides, where far too many Black and Latine parents have been left out of the conversation for far too long.
