Program areas at NSC

Conducive environment - through the creation of a community and family engagement arm of its work, k1c aims to empower families with the information to make the best choices for their children's Education and to help shape Education policy to better serve all of Chicago's pk-12 public school children. K1c offers free enrollment workshops to help parents and students understand their school options and navigate the application process. K1c also works with parents to help them advocate for Education issues that are important to their families and communities, with the goal of having high-performing schools and programs in every area of the city.

School Quality - K1C offers select school improvement support for underperforming schools to improve their academic outcomes in sustainable ways. K1C leverages the technical, business and operational expertise from strategic partners and service providers to support schools on their path to improvement, while documenting learning that can be applied to more schools to positively impact more students.

Policy - Guided by what parents say they need from their public schools, K1C pursues the policy improvements needed - e.g. fair and simplified access, adequate and equitable funding, transparent information about school quality - within Chicago's PK-12 education system that will help ensure all students, especially low-income students of color, receive a quality education. K1C collaborates with Chicago Public Schools (CPS), the City of Chicago, and other education partners to advance evidence-based education policy, publishes white papers and reports, and creates data tools to shed light on educational inequities and support district-, school- and student-level improvements. In addition to working with grass-tops influencers, K1C also strives to make information about these policy areas accessible to communities and families to support their decision-making and allow them to become active and effective advocates for policy change.
