The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) is leading a national movement to improve student performance and the entire educational experience by building the best possible schools.
CHPS is Revising the National Core Criteria
The CHPS National Core Criteria provides a national framework for states and regions wishing to create or update adaptations of the CHPS Criteria. The National Technical Committee has sought comments on the revision over four public comment periods. We anticipate that the CHPS National Core Criteria, Version 2.0 will be released in early 2014.
