Welcome to the VIVA Project.
I am Cindy Richards and I will be your moderator. Over the next three weeks, we are asking you and other Chicago classroom teachers to offer your recommendations and ideas on how to redesign the school schedule to best fit the needs of the students in your classroom.
How the VIVA Project Works
We collect ideas from teachers from across the city on the question of optimizing the CPS schedule to best address the current needs of students.
We select a Task Force of forum members to synthesize and summarize the comments and assemble a report to present to Jean-Claude Brizard, CEO of the Chicago Public Schools.
Members of the Task Force meet with Brizard to present the group's recommendations.
