Join NPN & Prep Chicago for this MUST-ATTEND workshop for any parents considering Chicago Public Schools for next year. Dive deep into next steps to take after CPS notification letters have been sent.
In this session, PREP will delve into the topic:
- ** What to do now that notification letters have been sent out?
- ** Did you know there is a little known process that you can use if you weren’t accepted into the school of your choice?
- ** How do you weigh your private school admission options vs CPS?
- ** How will the delay of neighborhood letters this year affect your decision making process?
The presenters will talk about admissions criteria and the infamous “tier” system. They will share tips with parents on how to “work the waitlist.” They'll also share information on changes that may be coming for the 2013-2014 school year.
Please note: This session is best suited for parents who already understand the basics of CPS and private school admissions. The seminar will provide valuable information for parents who applied this year and have recently received letters of admission or wait list letters and are looking for an explanation of what to do.
Light snacks and beverages included! Open to NPN members and nonmembers.
