IFF is the project coordinator and financial intermediary for Chicago’s first Pay for Success (PFS) program. Launched in 2014, the PFS program is an innovative public-private partnership that expands Chicago Public Schools’ Child-Parent Center (CPC) program, making it possible for more than 2,600 kids and their families to benefit from CPC’s high-quality early childhood and parent engagement services.
For each year of the program, SRI International, the program’s independent evaluator, releases a report of student performance across kindergarten readiness, special education utilization, and third-grade literacy. Here is the March 2018 report and supporting materials:
- Report on Year Three (2016-17)
- Addendum by Chicago Public schools and the City of Chicago
