  • I reported months ago that CPS would not close any high schools for the 2013-2014 school year. However, remember there are other school actions that CPS will take against 16 or 17 high schools for the 2013-2014 school year. Some of these school actions are consolidations, phase-ins/outs, co-locations, turnarounds and boundary changes. CPS high schools are not off the hook for the 2013-2014 school year. P.S.- CPS will not official announce the final school actions hit list until March 31st. The Chicago Board of Education can not official by law vote on this list until May 31st. The next Chicago Board of Education meeting after this date will not be until June 26th, unless the Board calls for a special board meeting. Students, parents, guardians, teachers, principals, administrators and community stakeholders will not find out about their schools until the end of the school year.

  • Thank you RP. I am curious, I live in the Rogers Park Neighborhood, and I am curious about Sullivan High School. I recently learned, from some parents, that the principal is leaving to take a job at another high school. She was only principal for a year and a half and I have heard from parents that she was really doing a great job. It just seems weird that a new principal would leave after such a short time. If she was doing a great job, and is leaving, it really makes you wonder if Sullivan is on some type of action hit list. I feel bad for the parents, students and teachers, that they are going through this.

  • In reply to district299reader:

    I will look into this and see what I find.

  • This is so funny. Rahm is his own worst enemy. When will he realize that outside panels are not going to give him the answers he wants to hear. You think he would have learned after the independent fact finder report came out, virtually guaranteeing the teacher's strike. Either BBB is as dense as Brizard about understanding how Chicago works or it has been the Mayor who has been dense all along.
