Dear CPS Families,
Following the 2016 Presidential Election, CPS was the first large school district in the country to make it clear that we would do everything in our power to prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from accessing our schools.
In light of recent statements from President Trump about potential ICE activity in Chicago and other large cities, we want to reaffirm to you our full commitment to serving as a Welcoming District that embraces, celebrates and protects every student regardless of their race, ethnicity or country of origin.
Some of you have inquired about the protections in place to safeguard your children at school during summer programming. Protecting our students is the district’s greatest priority, and we will do everything in our power to prevent ICE from accessing CPS facilities, collecting student and family information, and using CPS personnel to assist in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law.
We know this may be a very challenging time for you, your family, and school community, and we want to highlight a set of resources that you can reference in regard to potential immigration questions. Attached you will find:
Our schools are safe, supportive, and nurturing environments for all students, and if your children are scheduled to participate in summer programming at our schools, we strongly encourage you to continue with those plans so your children can benefit from the services and supports our staff has planned from them.
The strength of our district lies in its diversity, and we are proud that you are part of our school community. We hope that the attached resources will be useful in addressing some of the concerns you may have, and we encourage you to reach out to your school’s principal or network office for additional information, resources and guidance.
Janice K. Jackson, EdD Miguel del Valle Chief Executive Officer President Chicago Public Schools Chicago Board of Education

Your input is needed! I am working to finalize a budget proposal to be presented to the Local School Council on Thursday, April 11th, in particular, around Recess, Specials and Administrative Support.
With the exception of the Pre-K expansion, our budget is fairly flat from prior years with minimal options for increasing programming. We are already planning to add in an additional classroom for the current 5th grade group/next years 6th grade group - this means that there will be (4) classrooms at each grade level with an average class size ranging from 25-29 students.
Please complete this survey by Monday, April 8th.

Ya estamos planeando agregar un salón de clases adicional para el grupo actual de 5to grado / grupo de 6to grado para los próximos años; esto significa que habrá (4) salones de clase en cada nivel de grado con un tamaño promedio de clase de 25 a 29 estudiantes.
