About the ATT

The ATT is the hub for quality education, funding and advocacy to empower Chicago area Jewish day schools. Our vision is for all children to achieve their individual potential as learners and thrive as productive, committed and communally involved Jews.

We achieve this by directly supporting school leaders and teachers through:

  • Comprehensive professional development
  • Instructional coaching and administrative support
  • Piloting models of Jewish educational excellence
  • Coordinating with outside agencies
  • Engaging the community in educational programs and opportunities

We have been serving the greater Chicagoland Jewish community as the central agency for religious education since our founding in 1929. Currently, the ATT has an enrollment of 3600 students in its schools and its summer programs.

As the supervisory agency of a network of more than 20 regional schools, special education and learning differences programs, the ATT plays a prominent role with each segment of its schools’ populations. Not only does the ATT provide direct resources to its schools and teachers, it also supplies students and parents with crucial programming and educational services.

We assist in curricular planning, provide professional development of teachers and supply a host of educational resources to schools.

Principals Networking

A key leadership role of the ATT is the work it does with principals and administrators of our schools. ATT facilitates the exchange of ideas as well as the creation of educational programs that support our affiliated institutions. The ATT also works with the principals on an individual basis, offering advice, support, and encouragement for their programs.  Recently the ATT has also started to involve the lay leadership of our schools and has worked with them in identifying areas that need improvement within their institutions.

For further information contact Rabbi Avrohom S. Moller at the ATT at 773-973-2828.

Support and Guidance

ATT professional staff offers our affiliated schools direct on-site supervision of classroom instruction to assist schools and principals in guaranteeing the finest Jewish education.

Evaluation of ATT Schools

The ATT, through its supervisory staff and curricular experts, performs teacher, principal and school evaluations. These evaluations provide valuable insight into the successful functioning of our affiliated institutions and improve the education provided to our children.

Curriculum Development

ATT works together with schools to provide expert advice and resources to review, modify, and evaluate curricula. Recent examples of this work include curricula for Tefillah, Chumash, Ivrit/Dikduk, a complete English writing curriculum, and the “Early Childhood Standards Manual” (developed in conjunction with the Jewish Federation’s Kehillah).
