Prior to the regular Chicago Board of Education meeting, a Public Hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 27th at 42 W. Madison Street, Garden Level, Board Room, Chicago, IL 60602. 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.
Testimony from educators, parents and members of the public about the proposal will be taken during the Public Hearing.
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.
