CPS sends survey to Potential Program Providers for "Welcoming Schools"

This was sent to us today. CPS is looking for vendors to provide field trips to welcoming schools?


Hello CPS Program Providers!
Today we are reaching out to you with a great opportunity to support CPS students and families this spring through the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.

We are seeking providers interested in offering a range of services to the 2013-14 Welcoming Schools (schools receiving students as a result of school closings/action this spring).  Each Welcoming School will be preparing activities for students and families to get acclimated to a new school community, to engage in healthy dialogue, and to provide hands-on opportunities for students.  This can range from field trips to 1-day workshops or multi-day programs.

Once we gather the results of the survey, you will be contacted in late spring so we can familiarize your organization with the procedures the schools will undertake to access your programming.

Thank you for your quick response to the survey.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated and we apologize for the quick turn-around.

NOTE: If you are an ARTS partner, please click this sentence to complete Ingenuity Incorporated's brief survey.

If you are NOT an ARTS organization, and are interested in supporting our Welcoming Schools, please complete our brief survey by clicking here.
If you have questions, please first review the survey and then direct ALL questions totransitions@cps.edu
Thank you so much for all that you do for CPS students, and for your consideration of this important request.
