Chicago Public Schools is the third largest school district in the United States. One of the top priorities in the Chicago Public Schools is to provide unique learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
To accomplish that goal, Snow City Arts helps CPS accomplish this by tracking our work with patients against state learning standards, and sharing it with CPS to get children classroom credit for work accomplished in the hospital. CPS has even created a special Snow City Arts Course which allows chronically ill children to take our “class” and follow a specialize curriculum in the hospital setting that allows them to keep up in school.
With a goal to continually launch new programs and initiatives to improve education for CPS students, parents, teachers, partners and the community, the CPS partners with Snow City Arts to help bridge the gap between school and hospitalization.
