CPS School Transitions

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is committed to providing every child from every community with a high-quality education that prepares them for success in college and in life. Our schools include a rigorous curriculum that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and our investments in the arts, technology and early childhood education provide students with a well-rounded learning experience from the moment they start Kindergarten until the day they graduate from high school. We are committed to recruiting outstanding teachers and principals for our schools, and to providing our students with the academic, social and emotional skills they will need to be competitive in a global, 21st Century economy. As a District, it is our responsibility and privilege to put our students on a path to lasting success.

That is why the District is proposing the following actions to take effect for the 2017-18 school year.

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 2017-18. 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.
