Building from a two year program of work led by CUEL team members Lisa Walker and Steve Tozer and supported by several Chicago funders, CUEL has received two grants totaling 45K to support equity-oriented improvement through the generation and use of knowledge associated with high-churn school and the improvement of such schools. CUEL defines high-churn schools as exhibiting instability in student enrollment and attendance. There are about 125 high-churn elementary schools in the Chicago Public Schools, which is 30% of all public non-charter schools. Most schools identified for intensive intervention by state (ISBE) and local (CPS) accountability systems are high-churn. CUEL members including Lisa Walker, Steve Tozer, Shelby Cosner, and Jason Salisbury will be engaged in this work in collaboration with various CPS senior leaders.
