Sports

Thanks to the hard work of our sports committee, CPS agreed to substantial stipends for coaches, athletic directors and elementary school sports liaisons. Find out here if you are eligible for a stipend.
In 2021, CTU and CPS came to agreement on how to allocate the $25 million in additional sports funding our union won in the 2019–24 contract. As a result, coaches, athletic directors and sports liaisons received the agreed payment for the 2020–21 and 2021–22 school years.

In keeping with the agreement, CPS recently sent us a list of coaches, elementary school sports liaisons, and athletic directors they believe are eligible to receive the additional payment for work performed in the 2022–23 school year.

Confirm your eligibility

We need all those eligible for payment to confirm their work in order to determine if each individual will receive the maximum amount or if the total allocation must be divided equally among all recipients. This is because the agreement provides, in relevant part:

FY22, FY23, and FY24, the Board will allocate a $1,145 stipend per season (up to a maximum of 3 seasons per year) to all elementary school liaisons, except as provided below. [3] The maximum total annual payout under this paragraph shall not exceed $1,100,000 per year. In the event the number of liaisons in a year would result in $1,145 payments exceeding $1,100,000, the payments under this paragraph for that year will be reduced pro rata such that the payments will be in the amount of $1,100,000 divided by the number of seasons that the individual serves as liaison.

and

For FY22, FY23, and FY24, the Board will allocate a $3,835 stipend to one athletic director per CPS high school, except as provided below. The maximum total annual payout under this paragraph shall not exceed $372,000 per year. In the event the number of high school athletic directors in a year would result in $3,835 payments exceeding $372,000, the payments under this paragraph for that year will be reduced pro rata such that the payments will be in the amount of $372,000 divided by number of high school athletic directors.

For more information, you can download the full agreement.

Because the agreement provides a maximum total payout amount, we will not know the precise amount of the additional payment each coach, liaison and athletic director will receive until we have confirmed how many members are eligible for each payment. The names of members CPS has indicated they believe are eligible for payment for FY23 are loaded into this look-up. If you do not see yourself listed in this look-up, please complete the Sports Stipend Inquiry survey no later than December 8 so that we can notify CPS of the omission.

The lookup form is at the top of the right-hand sidebar column on this page.
