Nearly 355,000 children and their families are counting on us to meet and exceed the challenges of our students’ educational needs this fall, and there is nothing that we cannot tackle on their behalf.
Clerks are the heart of school communities, and they deserve the same rights as teachers. They are majority Black and Brown women, heads of household. Their lives matter.

CPS must recognize that we are teaching in a pandemic, and provide more for working parents and families
We’ve accepted that this is a pandemic, and we’ve adapted accordingly to serve our school communities. We’re not sure CPS has done the same.
We have 35 days until students report to school, and CPS must immediately start planning transparently and in partnership with our union to provide every student the educational, social and emotional supports they need to learn and grow.
