CPS Strategic Plan

The Blueprint: CPS’ Plan for the Future

Community Partnership School has embarked on a vital chapter in our inspiring and evolving story. Since opening our doors in 2006, we have grown into a thriving, fully operating elementary school poised to more broadly engage our immediate neighborhood and beyond.

Over the past several years, we have reaffirmed our core purpose, strengthened governance practices, and initiated a number of exciting program initiatives in successfully achieving the goals set forth in our Growth Plan adopted in 2013. 

More recently, we have completed the long-awaited and mission-critical construction of our new home at 3033 W. Glenwood Ave, about a half-mile away from our previous location in Project HOME’s Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs. In rehabilitating an abandoned warehouse that had been dormant for decades, this newly renovated, state-of-the-art campus further establishes a stable foundation that secures a sustainable future for CPS. 

Alongside all the above-mentioned efforts, we completed a strategic planning process during the 2017-18 fiscal year to clarify our way forward and provide form and structure for our aspirations relative to our mission. Its goals, recommendations, and program of action represent the collective work of many committed individuals across constituent groups. 

Many thanks to our Board of Trustees, Faculty and Staff, Parents and Guardians, and various partners and friends for their significant contributions to this work. We are especially grateful for our consultant, Edith G. Arrington, who skillfully facilitated such a careful and comprehensive strategic planning process, and Katie Greenbaum Neff who provided additional planning and administrative guidance.  

So while the future is necessarily unpredictable, this strategic plan — Community Partnership School’s blueprint for the future — defines our framework for navigating what’s ahead and positions CPS for broadened impact and success. We emerge from our strategic planning and relocation processes that much stronger, and we’re excited to share the results with you.
