Here's a bootleg copy of the massive 178-page presentation made to principals on Friday, passed along by a friend of the site who thinks that what CPS does should be transparent. Agreed. Take a look and let us know if you see anything new (or describe how it was presented or received at your table if you were there).
Some things I noticed: Lots of useful phone numbers and contact names. There's a shout-out to "local successes" Burnham and Haines elementary schools, along with the usual stuff about needing a longer day. Is the concept of "bounded autonomy" new language with the new networks, or is it a carryover from Huberman or Duncan? Is the regular schedule really called Track R? If so, I didn't know that. (There's always something I don't know.) We love emails and memos sent from principals and administrators, so feel free to send yours along to me at district299 at gmail.com. Thanks!
