Bridges of Opportunity

Districts across Illinois are examining the transition from middle school to high school to ensure equitable opportunities for all their students. Launched in the spring of 2022, Bridges of Opportunity, brings educational leaders from across the country to examine the negative impacts of premature "ability" tracking. Please reach out if you would like to join the steering committee or would like to receive invitations for upcoming events.
