About the ARA

The purpose of the ARA is to support CPS’s goal of providing every student with a high-quality education in every neighborhood by giving stakeholders consistent information regarding school quality, enrollment patterns, school choice, and program offering by region. The goal is to ensure that every student in Chicago has access to quality public schools and a variety of schools and programs.

By doing this, the ARA informs community dialogue and district planning to address a central guiding question, “What do families and communities need in terms of school options?”
