Community as a Campus (CAAC) in Full Gear


The Community as a Campus (CAAC) has been organized to support the schools of Greater Humboldt Park, which feed into the neighborhood high school, Roberto Clemente Community Academy. The CAAC implements it’s support through three education institutes that work with parents, support youth leadership development and school improvement and innovation.

The goal of the CAAC is to support all our schools for the benefit and success of the students, families and the community they serve and to align curriculum and resources to achieve this end.

Finally, the CAAC is a ”Community Action Council” of the Chicago Public Schools. There are nine councils in the Chicago land area and are comprised of 25-30 members, tasked with developing a strategic plan to achieve educational excellence in their respective school communities. For more information see the Family and Community Engagement web page of CPS.

The CAAC meets twice a month. For more information contact Marvin Garcia, CAAC coordinator at
