Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

On Tuesday, The Chicago Public Education Fund (The Fund) announced its support of the principals from Chicago’s public schools selected to participate in the second cohort of the Chicago Principals Fellowship. Conrad Timbers-Ausar, principal of Ombudsman Chicago West School in Chicago Lawn, was one of the 20 chosen for the yearlong, rigorous professional development program designed to support and retain top Chicago public school principals citywide. Made possible with support from The Fund and The Crown Family, the Chicago Principals Fellowship is developed and delivered by Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and School of Education and Social Policy. The 2015-2016 Chicago Principal Fellows were selected by a panel of CPS leaders after an open application process that attracted nearly 60 candidates. A few of this year’s Principal Fellows include: Gerardo Arriaga – Enrico Tonti Elementary School; Olimpia Bahena – Talcott Fine Arts and Museum Academy; Eduardo D. Cesario – DeWitt Clinton Elementary School; and Efren Toledo – Ole A. Thorp Scholastic Academy. The Fund is committed to increasing the number of great public schools in Chicago and believes high-quality principals are critical to realizing that goal.
