WHAT IS THE ANNUAL REGIONAL ANALYSIS?
The Annual Regional Analysis (ARA) is a report produced by Chicago Public Schools (CPS) every year to aid in district planning and supports its mission of providing a high-quality school in every neighborhood.
It is a consistent set of information on enrollment, student demographics, school quality, school choice, and program offerings organized by region. It shows improvements over time as well as illuminating areas for district intervention and collective action. The report presents data, but does not make recommendations or action steps, rather serving as an input to community engagement and joint solution development.
