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 present during the public participation portion of the meeting.

The Governor’s Disaster Proclamation, which declared, in part, that in-person attendance of more than 10 people was not feasible in light of public health concerns, has expired.  Accordingly, the Board President and the Interim Chief Executive Officer have determined that registered speakers who wish to present during Public Participation may have the option to participate in person at the location of the Board meeting or virtually via an electronic platform. The public will have access to the meeting via live stream at cpsboe.org.

Interim Guidelines have been issued by the President of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago in accordance with Board Rule 2-4.1. These Interim Guidelines are effective July 26, 2021. During the period they are in effect, these Interim Guidelines supersede the Public Participation Guidelines issued August 28, 2013 (rev. September 13, 2018).

When registration opens, 30 public participation slots will be available to members of the public, who can participate in person or virtually via an electronic platform that the Board will offer.

Members of the public may submit written comments for Board of Education meetings via the Written Comments Form on the Board’s website at www.cpsboe.org or mailed to 1 N Dearborn, Suite 950. Written comments received between the day the public agenda is posted through 5 p.m. the day after the Board of Education meeting will be submitted to the Board and posted within five (5) business days on our website at www.cpsboe.org.

Following is the Board's regular monthly meeting schedule for 2021–2022.
