How donations are used
Longitudinal studies of children growing up in high-needs areas, like the neighborhoods AUSL schools are located, consistently reveal that these students are at a high risk of educational underachievement as early as first grade.
AUSL raises substantial funding from foundations, corporations, government agencies, and committed individuals to provide our students with extra support structures above and beyond the resources Chicago Public Schools provides for general school operating budgets. These services range from teacher coaches to afterschool programming and everything in between.
