CPS receives $500K grant to create more diverse campuses

A half-million-dollar grant is coming to Chicago Public Schools (CPS).

The grant aims to create more diverse campuses.

Chicago is seen as a district where debates have long raged over how to address the inequities of school segregation.

CPS plans to use its share of the grant to hire staff and host community meetings as part of ongoing initiatives related to school quality and student admissions.
