What's in the Tentative Agreement synopsis
Be sure to check out page two—the back side of the pdf—for a quick overview of the class size provisions. This powerful new language forces CPS to hold to the upper limits of class size that the district has routinely violated.

Our school district recently discovered that one of its vendors, Battelle For Kids, was hacked and had 500,000 student records and 56,000 staff records stolen. The breach included students’ names, schools, dates of birth, gender, CPS identification number, state student identification number, class schedule information and scores on course-specific assessments used for teacher evaluations.

So, we did a little thing at the Board of Ed and City Hall this week with a few hundred charter educators demanding responsible oversight of charter operators, and that Mayor Lightfoot and her CPS team use federal COVID relief funds the right way and support charter students, families and school communities. Happy Solidarity Friday!
