CPS details staff cuts from closing of schools

Chicago Public Schools released more details today on staff cuts coming this year from the closing of 49 elementary schools and a high school program.

Altogether, 663 employees, including teachers, teaching assistants and bus aides were notified today that they don’t qualify to follow students to welcoming schools.

There will be more cuts ahead. While up to 600 teachers rated highly still qualify to move with students from closing schools to receiving schools under the teacher union’s contract, it is unknown how many slot are open to them. As principals at those receiving schools begin finalizing staffing plans for next year, those teachers will be informed if there is an open position for them.
