Today, we return to classrooms with real and lasting change for our students and the people of this city.
We have a tentative agreement and will return to schools on Friday, Nov. 1. The final issue—our return-to-work terms—was resolved as we reached an agreement today with the mayor and Chicago Public Schools to make up five days of student instruction.
The Chicago Teachers Union yesterday reached a Tentative Agreement for a new contract with Chicago Public Schools. Regrettably, the same can’t be said about instructional make-up days for students.
