This is an incredibly exciting time for CICS, as we strive to accelerate our efforts to develop CICS into a consistently high-performing network of academically rigorous, pedagogically diverse, innovative schools that prepare every student for success in college, career and life.
We are looking for forward-thinking, enthusiastic and dedicated individuals to join us in creating a hub of excellence and innovation in Chicago education that catalyzes improvement in student performance citywide.
At the CICS Network Office, located in downtown Chicago, we serve our unique campuses, and strive to ensure that all CICS students and staff have the support they need to reach their full potential. We provide resources and support to help each of our campuses thrive.
At CICS, teachers and staff may be hired by the School Management Organization (SMO) or by CICS, depending on the campus operator.
CICS and SMOs also provide professional development and are responsible for the school's performance on behalf of students. This structure allows the school director and teachers to focus on our schools and build school culture.
