Portfolio Strategy

Portfolio Strategy

A great school for every child in every neighborhood

In portfolio cities, families have the freedom to attend their neighborhood schools or choose one that is the best fit for their child. The portfolio strategy supports principals and teachers—those who work most closely with students—and frees them to use their best ideas to ignite student learning. And it presses city and district leaders to support and expand successful schools until every child in the city attends a great school.

CRPE’s portfolio work creates impact through the Portfolio Network, a growing number of cities—including New York, New Orleans, Chicago, Denver, and Baltimore —that are pursuing the portfolio strategy. Currently more than 40 cities, representing almost 5 million students, are working to implement the strategy. These cities receive a Portfolio Implementation Snapshot, where CRPE rates each district based on its portfolio implementation progress or decline. Our Portfolio Implementation Snapshot Tool allows cities to view their progress over time and compare against one another.
