Teachers Union Highlights Chicago's School Funding Woes In Neighborhood Tour

  • Alderman Carlos Ramirez Rosa speaks at a press conference on education equity outside the National Teachers Academy

Chicago Public School principals officially learn Thursday what their schools' budgets will be for the upcoming school year, but they may not be able to count on that money.

"Chicago's public school students deserve adequately funded classroom services, a school system that respects and engages families and communities, and best practices and a commitment to adequately fund public education", said the CTU in a press release.

However, district officials said they would not hold back 4 percent of each school's special education budget as they did past year to fund unanticipated costs for students who qualify for additional services, Claypool said. CPS attributed the "vast majority" of the funding reduction to the expected drop in enrollment, though the district said it also expected to see a decline in other funding - including federal dollars.

Gov. Bruce Rauner has said he will veto SB 1.

The funding boost comes as the district expects another decline in enrollment - 8,000 fewer students this year.

Principals and Local School Councils have until Wednesday to submit spending plans to district officials.

CTU President Karen Lewis called the District's continued funding crises "educational terrorism". "We will do what is necessary to keep our schools open and maintain the historic academic gains we have made these past few years, including continuing our efforts to reduce bureaucracy while investing money directly in classrooms". A bill on the governor's desk would provide $300 million in funding for Chicago schools, but he has vowed to veto it.

When school begins in September, CPS will face $544 million shortfall.

CPS also has said it expects salaries and benefits to be up $99 million from a year ago. The Chicago Teachers Union will be commenting Thursday afternoon.

The district said it would add more funds for additional teachers and paraprofessionals in what are known as special education "cluster" programs for the system's most disabled population.

"For the third year in a row, CPS leaders have provided a budget to schools without having any ideas how they will pay for it", she said in a statement.
