LMSA wins $280,000 grant


As part of the Break Through Schools program, Lindblom was awarded $280,000 to continue being a pioneer in education and proficiency-based learning.


 A team of Lindblom teachers has spent the last year participating the in the Break Through Schools session.  The team included Mr. Brannigan, Mr. Fuess, Mr. Morrison, and Ms. O’Hare.  They developed a strong grant proposal of how Lindblom will move forward for the next five years.

According to The Chicago Public Education Fund: “The Fund, in partnership with New Schools for Chicago, secured $1 million in funding from the The Broad Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to launch a regional pilot for the Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) program – Breakthrough Schools: Chicago. This opportunity will enable local educators to apply for and receive investments to develop promising school designs that will help drive student learning.”

Lindblom is one of seven schools in the city to win this award. The others are CICS Irving Park, Disney II High School, Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy, Joseph Lovett Elementary School, Patrick Henry Elementary School, and University of Chicago Charter School – Donoghue campus.
