2021 marked the sixth year of Chicago’s citywide 本金增值活动, when we joined forces with 学校社区, 市政府官员, and corporate leaders to lift up the great work of our hardworking school leaders. In 2021, principals continued to lead over 600 学校社区 with over 350,000 students through a global pandemic, making it possible for a return to five-day a week in-person learning.
