Community Meetings, January–March 2013

As CPS works to address the District's utilization crisis, engaging the community in a transparent and respectful way is a crucial part of the process. To ensure that school communities are active participants in this process and that their voices are heard, the CEO held 29 community meetings throughout the city, two in every Network, where over 20,000 members of school communities provided feedback. The first round of meetings provided high-level information about schools in each Network and collected feedback from communities to share with the CEO. The second round of meetings allowed communities to provide feedback on specific schools in their Network. Presentations, notes, transcripts and videos are available below.

Utilization Report

The CPS CEO announced in her formal response to the Commission on School Utilization that high schools and Level 1 high-performing schools will not be considered as part of the District's efforts to address its utilization crisis, except in rare cases where a school may pose a life/safety threat to students and staff. These were among several recommendations embraced by the CEO after she reviewed the report issued Jan. 10 by the Commission, which she formed to evaluate the District's utilization challenges and engage the community around this issue.

Commission on School Utilization

The Commission on School Utilization is an independent body facilitating community conversations to study the district's current state, engage community members and gather input on how to improve our schools, and make recommendations on how best to address the financial challenges facing CPS.

Independent Hearing Officers

Before CPS may close, consolidate, reassign students via a boundary change, phase-out or co-locate a school, the public has the opportunity to provide comment at hearings conducted by independent hearing officers, who are licensed attorneys in Illinois. After the hearings, hearing officers will issue a written summary of the testimony provided as well as their findings of CPS' compliance with  105 ILCS 5/34-230, the state law that governs school action processes, to the CPS CEO.
