CPS is planning to give the SAT and PSAT exams in person this fall, starting with the September 23 administration. Once again they have missed the mark. Our predominantly Black and Latinx students and their families are facing many economic, social, health, and emotional challenges in this moment. Yet, CPS is still requiring Seniors to take the SAT before they graduate.
As we prepare for bargaining with CPS, we want to share where we are on several key items that we know you continue to have questions about, and that we, unfortunately, are still battling CPS over.
Reports from rank-and-file Chicago Teachers Union members reveal vast gaps in personal protective equipment (PPE), safety and cleaning, with exactly a week before the Sept. 8 start of classes in Chicago Public Schools.
In an update on accommodations, please note that employees who requested an accommodation to work remotely can work remotely while it is pending.
There needs to be grace and understanding when recognizing the limitations of a purely remote teaching or learning environment. One year of imperfection will not devastate us. But the loss of lives will.
