Superintendent of Schools
The superintendent oversees a diverse, urban school district that covers about 91 square miles and serves 35,000 students in preschool through 12th grade in 58 schools.
Superintendent Laura Mitchell, a graduate of the School for Creative and Performing Arts, began serving as Superintendent in August 2017 after serving as Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer for CPS since 2005.
Mitchell has led implementation of major district academic improvement strategies such as the Elementary Initiative, which raised achievement in the district’s 16 lowest-performing elementary schools, and My Tomorrow, a comprehensive college and career readiness initiative. Her primary focus as superintendent is to continue to accelerate academic achievement throughout the district and prepare students to compete globally.
