Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote, preserve and protect public schools and public education. All children regardless of race, color, creed, nationality, gender, disability, class or economic status should have equal educational opportunity so they can participate successfully in the civic and economic life of the Commonwealth. CPS opposes any political or social initiative that seeks to infringe on or endanger such a vital resource as our public schools. Our goals:

  • Keep public resources for public schools under public control in innovative, inclusive, democratically accountable schools.
  • Increase funding equitably to ensure high-quality public schools for all children.
  • Ensure equal access and educational opportunities for every child.
  • Guarantee every student a well-rounded public education that meets the needs of the whole child.
  • Implement multiple forms of assessment to evaluate and improve student learning and the quality of schools.
