The session, co-hosted by the Department, the Federation of Community Schools and Elev8 Chicago, will provide participants an opportunity to discuss how to leverage Chicago-area resources that aim to engage K-12th grade students in college-bound thinking, and how to help the area’s neediest students and parents believe that college can be their reality. Prior to his federal appointment, Darnieder established Chicago Public Schools’ department of postsecondary education and student development.
