Enclosed is a copy of the Agenda for the Regular Board of Education meeting to be held on Wednesday, April 27, 2016. The meeting will be held at CPS Loop Office, 42 West Madison Street, Garden Level, Board Room. The Board Meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Public Participation Guidelines are available on www.cpsboe.org or by calling (773) 553-1600.
For the April 27, 2016 Board Meeting, advance registration to speak and observe was available beginning Monday, April 18th at 8:00 a.m. through Friday April 22nd at 5:00 p.m., or until all slots filled. Advance registration during this period was available by the following methods:
Phone: (773) 553-1600
In Person: 1 North Dearborn Street, Suite 950
The Public Participation segment of the meeting will begin immediately following the CEO Report and proceed for no more than 60 registered speakers for the two hours.
Prior to the Regular Board meeting, a Public Hearing will be held concerning a waiver application. CPS seeks a five year waiver to modify 105 ILCS 5/18-8.05(F)(2)(i) to allow the date of the ACT exam or other similar national college entrance exam to count as a day of student attendance for general state aid purposes. The district has “banked” enough instructional minutes throughout the year so that the day of the test administration may be counted as a day of student attendance. The Public Hearing will begin at 9:30 am. Speaker registration for the Public Hearing will be held from 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. on the 1st Floor of the Madison Street Lobby. The Public Participation segment of the Public Hearing will conclude after the last person who has signed in to speak has spoken, or at 9:45 a.m. whichever occurs first.
