Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Mayor Emanuel, City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) announced a collaborative effort to support Learn. Plan. Succeed. (LPS), a first in the nation initiative to ensure all CPS students graduate with a post high school plan by 2020. As part of LPS, City Colleges is committing to help 1,000 CPS students create a postsecondary plan beginning in spring 2018 by investing in seven postsecondary navigators. The navigators will help students at 18 high schools execute postsecondary plans to best fulfill their goals for the future. Each postsecondary navigator will be assigned to support approximately 150 students at designated CPS high schools. Navigators will work with the schools’ postsecondary leadership teams and directly with students as they craft postsecondary plans, such as: attending a four-year university, City College of Chicago, or other 2-year college; enrolling in a trade, apprenticeship, or job program; enrolling in the military; signing up for a gap year program; or working full-time. A few of the high schools selected to partner with the navigators are:

  • Bowen High School
  • Chicago Vocational Career Academy High School
  • Clemente Community Academy High School
  • Forman High School
  • Hirsch High School
  • Hubbard High School
  • Kennedy High School
  • Roosevelt High School
  • Sullivan High School
  • Wells Community Academy High School
