Covid-19 Spending

Chicago Public Schools is committed to doing everything in its power to lift up students, families, and staff during the COVID-19 public health emergency. To ensure the CPS community is supported during this unprecedented crisis, the district is taking a variety of significant actions including distributing more than 100,000 computing devices and providing millions of free meals for our students.

Each month, CPS will post an updated list of projected expenditures associated with the district's response to COVID-19. The table below tracks all projected spending that is in direct response to COVID-19, including spending that is authorized by the emergency resolution approved at the March 2020 Board of Education meeting, as well as spending covered by prior Board of Education authorizations.

*Combined purchase order totals will not match the estimated expenditures shown in the table because purchase orders have not yet been created for each planned expenditure. Additional purchase orders will be added to this page as they are finalized.
