This April, seven Chicago schools, four district and three charter, were awarded grants of up to $100,000 – and made the front page of the Chicago Tribune!

These grants completed the first cohort of Breakthrough Schools: Chicago, a regional pilot of the national Next Generation Learning Challenges program. LEAP Innovations led the Chicago pilot, with support from the Broad Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Chicago Public Education Fund. Read more about it here!
