In 2020 EEF made an investment of $ 181,262.00 in fifteen participants in the Chicago Teacher Residency class of 2020 program of The Academy for Urban School Leadership. These fifteen participants are now teaching high-needs students in high-needs Chicago Public Schools.
- The participants received funding essential to their participation in the program. In September 2020 the residents were hired as CPS Step 1 Lane 2 teachers. In 2020-2021 they will earn CTU scale, $60,075.00/ year, plus benefits.
- The EEF will reinvest participant Income sharing obligations into more student investments.
- Our community gains highly trained diverse teachers who are prepared to effectively teach for the long haul in schools where the need is great.
