School Actions Information
School actions refer to school closures, consolidations, co-locations, and re-assignment boundary changes. The CEO may propose a school action that is consistent with the CEO’s Guidelines on School Actions (Guidelines). Prior to the Board of Education of the City of Chicago (Board) voting on any proposed school actions, two community meetings and one public hearing must be conducted. Subsequent to the hearings, a Board-appointed Hearing Officer will submit a report to the CEO and the Board. The Board will then use the report(s) to inform their decision regarding school actions.
After careful consideration, the CEO is recommending that the Board consider and approve the following school actions for school year 2016-17. Please find more information about the proposals below. If you have comments or feedback about any of the proposed school actions, we invite you to share your thoughts at the scheduled community meetings or public hearings. If you cannot attend those events please submit feedback at Transitions@CPS.edu.
