Schools and Networks

FY18 is the fifth year that Chicago Public Schools has used Student Based Budgeting (SBB) to fund schools. SBB allocates funds to schools on a per-pupil basis, which creates greater consistency in funding across the district, ensuring that funding is fair and equitable, as dollars follow the students.

SBB funding in FY18 is increased from the funding level in FY17 to cover schools’ increased expenses, such as personnel costs. The base SBB rate for FY18 is $4,290 per pupil, which is an increase of 5 percent from the $4,087 rate at the beginning of FY17.

 

Enrollment

CPS has had declining enrollment for many years. This enrollment trend is consistent with a decline in the birth rate over the same period of time – not just in Chicago, but in Illinois and the country as a whole. (See Appendix A for more information about enrollment and demographics.)

In FY18, we are projecting a further net overall decline in enrollment of 8,485 students, or 2.2 percent, as shown in Table 1.

PreK-12 enrollment at traditional district-run schools is projected to decline by 8,480 students, from 314,970 in FY17 to 306,490 in FY18. In past years, the decline in enrollment at district-run schools was partially offset by an increase in enrollment at charter and contract schools. The growth in enrollment in charter and contract schools has been decelerating for several years, and in FY18 we are projecting only a slight increase in K-12 enrollment– an increase of 384 students, from 60,702 to 61,086.

Enrollment in Alternative Learning Options Programs (ALOP) has also leveled off, after several years of rapid growth that saw ALOP enrollment increase from 634 students in FY13 to 3,620 students at the end of FY15. FY16 saw the first year of slight enrollment decreases for ALOP programs, and we are projecting another slight decline in FY18 enrollment for a total of 2,789 students.

As shown in Table 1, pre-school enrollment is also projected to be nearly the same in FY18 as in FY17. Pre-school enrollment has been declining since fall 2011, which reflects the declining birth rates in Chicago and around the state and country. However, CPS has expanded its investment in Early Childhood education in FY18, including funding to support an increase of 75 full-day pre-school classrooms in high-need communities, to help ensure a higher percentage of families seeking Pre-K programs have accessible options this year.

 

Number of Schools

Per CPS definition, a school:

  1. is officially authorized by the Chicago Board of Education;
  2. is based in one or more buildings inside the geographic boundaries of the City of Chicago;
  3. has or will have one of the following governance structures: a local school council, an appointed local school council, a board of directors or a board of governors;
  4. employs at least one administrator to lead the school;
  5. employs at least one credentialed person to provide instruction to students;
  6. provides an appropriate curriculum for each grade level served that, at a minimum, meets all requirements of the Illinois State Code;
  7. requires progression towards a terminal grade level within a single school, regardless of physical location;
  8. is not defined under Illinois School Code as something other than a school (e.g., an Alternative Learning Opportunity Program is not a school); and
  9. has or is intended to have at least one actively enrolled student during the school year.

Based on this definition, there were 653 schools in FY17, and 649 schools in FY18. Table 2 gives the school count by school type.

The following sections discuss Core Instruction Funding and Additional Funding Received by Schools, including funding for diverse learners, bilingual, early childhood, other programs, discretionary funds, and operations.

 

Funding for Core Instruction

Traditional District Schools

Traditional district schools are funded through SBB. The only district-run schools that do not fall in this category are the 10 specialty schools and 4 district options schools, which are discussed in later sections.

In the aggregate, funding for district-run schools is increasing by more than $16 million from 20th day of FY17. This increase is due to the increase in the SBB rate meant to cover rising labor costs.

Charter/Contract Schools

Charter and contract schools are public schools managed by independent operators. First established in Chicago in 1997, they offer an alternative to traditional district-managed schools. Charter schools are approved and certified under the Illinois Charter School Law. Contract schools also are independently managed public schools with similar autonomies as charter schools in budget and curricular operations.

As outlined in Chart 1, CPS provides tuition to charter schools in two components: SBB and non-SBB. Together, these tuition amounts provide charter schools with an equitable share of the District’s general funds budget.

 

Chart 1: Overview of CPS Operating Budget for Charter Funding

Overview of CPS Operating Budget for Charter  Funding

 

SBB is the largest portion of the general funds budget, and it is allocated to all schools under the SBB model, which uses the same funding formulas for district and charter schools. The General Funds budget also includes some funding categories that are considered district-wide shared obligations, such as the unfunded pension liability. Charters do not receive tuition funding based on these shared obligations. Funding for operations, security, central office expenses and education support programs, which, for district-run schools, are paid-for through citywide spending, are paid to charter schools through a second category of funding called “non-SBB” funding. This ensures that charter school students receive an equitable share of this more centralized district school spending. Additionally, charter schools receive an equitable share of each categorical funding source, where applicable. Finally, administrative fees are charged to charter schools, so that they will contribute equitably to district overhead costs.

In FY18, no new charter schools are expected to open, and one charter school will close. Enrollment at charter and contract schools is expected to increase by 384 students, or .06%. The base rate for non-SBB funding has increased from $1,680 in FY16 to $1,750 in FY18, an increase of 3.2%. This is due in part to increased costs for utilities and transportation.

Alternative Learning Opportunity Programs (ALOP)

Alternative Learning Opportunity Programs provide different educational options for at-risk youth who are not currently enrolled in school. Since 2011, CPS has expanded partnerships with successful providers that specialize in working with off-track youth and more than doubled the number of available seats in options schools and programs.

Two ALOP programs were voluntarily closed by their providers in FY18, bringing the total to 10. In addition, 28 charter and contract schools and three district-run schools serve the same population of at-risk youth who have dropped out of school and seek to return.

Specialty Schools

Specialty schools serve primarily students with significant diverse learning needs, as well as three early childhood centers that have only Pre-K students. Specialty schools include:

  • Three early childhood centers serving only Pre-K students (Vick, Thomas, Stock)
  • Three early childhood centers serving Pre-K students, but where a significant number of diverse learners remain enrolled at the school for primary grades (Blair, Beard, Rudolph)
  • Four high schools serving 100 percent diverse learners (Northside, Southside, Graham, and Vaughn).

 

In FY18, specialty schools will receive $8.3 million in funding for core instruction, which represents 17.4 percent of their overall budgets of $47.5 million.

The costs of these schools are significantly more than traditional schools when compared on a per-pupil basis to account for the specific needs of the diverse learners they serve.

 

District Options Schools

District options schools provide educational options to students in confinement, at risk of dropping out of school, or who have dropped out and wish to return. District schools include one school located at the Cook County Jail (York), one at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (Jefferson), one school serving pregnant women (Simpson), and one school serves returning dropouts and students at risk of dropping out (Peace & Education Coalition).

In FY18, district options schools received a core allocation of $5.8 million for teachers and administrative positions. In addition, they received $9.4 million in supplemental Title I positions, which will help the schools address their unique challenges.

 

SAFE Schools

SAFE schools provide an educational option to students who have been expelled from another CPS school due to violence. CPS has one SAFE school on the south side of the city which is managed by an independent operator. The SBB and non-SBB tuition cost for this SAFE school is $1.3 million, which is partially offset by a state Regional Safe Schools grant of approximately $1.0 million.

 

Additional Funding Recieved by Schools

Although funding for core instruction is typically the largest portion of a school’s budget, schools receive additional funding to meet specific student needs, including funding for diverse learners, bilingual students, early childhood students, other programs, discretionary funds and school operations. See Appendix B for information on funding formulas for these allocations.

 

Supplemental Diverse Learner Funding

In FY18, schools received a diverse learner allocation for special education teachers and paraprofessionals needed to serve diverse learners outside of cluster programs. The allocation was based on the number of special education teachers and paraprofessionals needed to meet the IEP needs of students at the school (excluding students in cluster programs), as determined by a school-by-school review by the Office of Diverse Learners Supports and Services. The number of required positions was converted to a dollar allocation using the following rates: $100,000 per special education teacher; $50,000 per special education paraprofessional. As in FY17, the diverse learner allocation was combined with the school's SBB funds and given as a single allocation.

Principals have been directed to use their combined SBB/Diverse Learner funds to serve the needs of all of their students, and to schedule their diverse learners first for more efficient scheduling and to ensure all IEP requirements are met. Schools are expected to open the number of positions for which they received funding, and any excess funds should be used to serve diverse learners.

 

Bilingual Education

Schools receive supplemental bilingual education teachers and per-pupil funds based on their number of English language learner (EL) students. There are two programs: Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE), for schools that have 20 or more EL students of the same language background, and Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI), for schools that have fewer than 20 EL students of the same language background. The Office of Language and Cultural Education (OLCE) tracks EL students and allocates supplemental bilingual teachers and funds to schools.

The FY18 budget contains $26.7 million in supplemental funding to schools, including 209.5 supplemental bilingual education teachers and coaches. Bilingual education is supported by local funding dedicated state and federal funding.

 

Early Childhood

The FY18 budget contains $250 million in funding for early childhood programs at 359 elementary schools. Early childhood programs serve Pre-K students, usually ages 3 and 4, and are funded from both a state grant (Pre-School for All) and federal Head Start funds. This amount also includes $2.7 million of Title I funding that is used to fund some of the costs of 19 Child-Parent Centers, and $3.6 million for tuition-based Pre-K programs at district-run schools.

CPS also provides funding to community-based providers for early childhood programs, as described more fully in the Early Childhood department narrative, but this funding is not reflected in school budgets.

 

Other Programs

Some schools receive teaching positions or other additional funding for specific programs that are run at those schools. All programs except for STEM are funded from general funds. Details on these programs are found in their program narrative. Significant programs include:

Discretionary Funds 

Supplemental General State Aid (SGSA) is part of the General State Aid that CPS receives from the State of Illinois. SGSA funds are distributed to schools in proportion to the number of students enrolled who are eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunch under federal statutes.

CPS is required to distribute $261 million in SGSA funds each year. SGSA funds are initially distributed based on an estimated count of low-income students at each school, but the final SGSA amount will be adjusted based on 20th day enrollment.

The FY18 budget includes $259 million of SGSA funds budgeted at schools. The remaining $2 million remains in contingency and will be disbursed along with 20th day SGSA adjustments.

Unspent SGSA funds at a school at the end of the year carry over to the next fiscal year. In recent years, CPS has made an initial distribution of carryover funds in July based on end-of-year spending estimates. This initial distribution gives schools a substantial portion of their SGSA carryover before the beginning of the school year, in order to plan and make initial outlays for academic programs early in the year. School budgets in FY18 include just over $14.0 million of SGSA carryover.

Title I of the Federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides funds to schools with high concentrations of low-income children to provide supplementary services for educationally disadvantaged students. Approximately 85 percent of CPS schools qualify for Title I discretionary funding. The FY18 budget contains $185 million in Title I discretionary funding for CPS schools.

Non-Education Expenses

Schools have received additional positions, services and funding for various operational expenses. Many of these positions are managed centrally, rather than in schools, to gain district-wide efficiency and savings. Among the positions managed centrally are bus aides, engineers and custodians. In FY18, only the following non-education funding appears in schools budgets:

  • Security: School security officers and security aides are assigned to schools by the Office of Safety and Security. Security positions are budgeted at the schools.
  • Food Service: This includes the labor costs of the lunchroom staff; the food costs required to provide lunch and breakfast are budgeted centrally.

Please refer to the department narratives for more details about each of these operational areas.

Private Schools

Students, teachers and parents of private schools students are entitled to federal support through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), such as Title I, Title II, Title III, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). CPS must set aside a share of the federal funds it receives to make services available to eligible private school students, teachers and parents. However, these funds are not paid directly to the private schools; instead, CPS operates these programs on behalf of eligible students, teachers and parents.

Each year, CPS oversees and manages services for approximately 60,000 students in 240 private schools, totaling almost $27 million. In addition, CPS oversees services for children who attend 7 residential sites that specialize in serving children under the guardianship of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

The following chart shows the allocations directed to private schools for each of the federal programs. Funding is a proportionate share of funds based on the number of eligible students in each private school compared to the student’s designated CPS neighborhood school. FY18 amounts are projections; the final amounts will be determined only after the district’s FY18 application is approved by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Networks

District-run schools are organized into networks, which provide administrative support, strategic direction, and leadership development to the schools within the network.

Networks are led by network chiefs, who are responsible for building effective schools with strong leaders by developing a professional development plan, collecting and assessing data to drive interventions, collaborating on best practices with other networks and enhancing community and parental involvement. Networks are supported by deputy chiefs, data strategists, instructional support leaders for each content area, and administrative support. Each network also has a Family and Community Engagement Coordinator and a Specialized Services Administrator, although these positions appear in the budget for the Office of Family and Community Engagement and the Office of Diverse Learners, respectively. All network chiefs and their offices report to the Office of Network Support.

There are 13 networks that manage schools in various different geographic regions of the city. All networks are K-12, managing both elementary schools and high schools. Some schools fall under the Independent Schools Program (ISP) or the Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL) and do not belong to any of the 13 geographic networks.

In FY18, networks retained staffed positions from the previous year and gained a total of six deputy chief positions for additional school support and oversight. Seven data strategist positions serving the networks will be funded directly by the Office of Network Support, each one serving schools in two geographic networks. Each network received a $5,000 budget for administrative expenses and will receive a $50,000 budget for targeted teacher improvement of instruction.

Personnel dollars were not distributed equally to the 13 geographic networks. Each network was given a foundation allocation, but additional dollars were given to networks with higher poverty levels and/or higher concentrations of low-performing schools. Table 15 shows the FY18 budgets for each network:
