Planning calendar

The Chicago Board of Education holds its monthly Board meeting on the fourth Wednesday of each month, unless otherwise indicated.  Members of the public are welcome to voice their comments during the public participation portion of the meeting.

Please note that if the COVID-19 public health emergency stay-at-home order continues, Board Meetings will be live-streamed to the general public on the Board website (www.cpsboe.org) and CPS' YouTube page. The meeting will utilize a modified, streamlined format in which essential agenda items will be considered. When registration opens, 15 public participation slots will be available to members of the public, who can participate via an electronic platform that the Board will offer. Additionally, the public can also submit written testimony at BOE@cps.edu.

Following is the Board's regular monthly meeting schedule for 2020–2021.
