Chicago Public Schools launches the new Web site, www.CPSalumni.org, to connect an
estimated three million people, who have attended or worked in Chicago
Public Schools, with separate home pages for every school in CPS
history. CPS is the first large urban public school district to
organize its alumni in this way.
The goal of CPSalumni.org is to build relationships with alumni and
their former schools and classmates, engage alumni in supporting their
schools, share information about alumni groups and activities,
encourage the sharing of stories and photos about school experiences,
and archive public education in Chicago.
The site also will enable CPS to continue to build its list of famous
CPS alumni, which includes people such as Amelia Earhart, Nat King Cole
and Harrison Ford.
