  • 1. 2010 School Actions
  • 2. CPS Has Changed School Closing Guidelines
    • In an effort to reduce the burden placed on students, families and the community, resources and supports for transitioning students will be added to receiving schools
    • CPS has changed the school closing and consolidation processes
      • New guidelines create a more transparent and thorough process
    • A new “ School Closings Student Bill of Rights ” articulates the safeguards students can expect during the transition year
  • 3.
    • CPS can close, consolidate or create turnaround schools for any of 3 reasons:
      • Facilities in a state of disrepair culminating in the need for students to be relocated to a school with better infrastructure; or the facility’s use impractical
      • School enrollment currently, or projected to be, lower than 250 students
      • Chronic low performance culminating in 2 consecutive years of less than 33.3% of total possible points earned on the CPS Performance Policy
    CPS Has Changed School Closing Guidelines
  • 4. New Guidelines Highlights
    • Students will be sent to a higher performing school in all cases
      • All students will be re-assigned to a school that performed at least 20% better on the 2008/09 CPS Performance Policy
    • CPS will work with CPD and CTA to create safe passage plans for new commutes
    • Students will be given individualized transition plans to ensure a smooth transfer to their new school
    • Receiving schools will be provided with funding for an extended school day to provide more instructional time
  • 5. Student Bill of Rights
    • When a school is closed or consolidated, students will be assigned to a receiving school that has performed better on the CPS Performance Policy than their original school.
    • Designated receiving schools will be within 1.5 miles of the student’s home address. If a better performing receiving school is not available within that distance, CPS will provide transportation options to a better performing school during the transition year.
    • CPS will create safe passage plans in coordination with community partners, CPD, CTA and other city agencies to ensure, to the extent possible, that students have a safe commute to their new school.
  • 6. Student Bill of Rights
    • CPS will work with receiving school principals to extend instructional time in designated receiving schools.
    • A student’s school will not be closed or consolidated if that school has served as a designated receiving school within the last 2 academic years.
    • The District will provide individualized transition plans and supports for homeless and special needs students and families affected by school closure. Students in these groups that previously received transportation services from the District will continue to do so.
  • 7. Student Bill of Rights
    • CPS will ensure enrollment in Summer Bridge for eligible transitioning students to foster academic growth during the transition period.
    • Each student will be assigned a staff member at the new receiving school that is responsible for their transition.
    • Designated receiving school principals and teachers will create personal learning plans for transitioning students to facilitate their academic continuity.
  • 8. Facilities-based Closings
  • 9. Facilities-based Closing Guidelines
    • Facility has fallen into a state of disrepair culminating in the need for students to be relocated to a school with better infrastructure
      • The cost to repair safety hazards makes continued operation of the site cost-prohibitive
      • Continued occupancy of the site is unsafe or impractical
  • 10. Las Casas: Facility Usage
    • Facility not conducive to specific needs of special education students
      • Aging building cannot accommodate more innovative therapies as well as newer facilities
      • Building at a cost of $250,000 annually
    • Less than 50% attendance on any given day
    • Annual per pupil cost of $50,000 vs. approximately $30,000 at private providers which better serve students
