GoCPS: A First Look at Applications and Offers
With Lauren Sartain and Marisa de la Torre, 2018, white paper, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, August.
Description: Chicago Public Schools (CPS) offers many high school choices for students. Yet, applying to high school is complicated. CPS offers more than 250 choice programs and 11 selective enrollment programs (SEHSs) in 132 high schools. On April 26, 2017, the Chicago Board of Education adopted a common application across all high school choice programs, including charter high schools, in order to streamline the high school application process, called GoCPS. This paper presents information about the first year of implementation of GoCPS for students planning to enroll in ninth grade in the fall of 2018.
