CPS Releases Proposed FY2015 Budget

Despite claims of “keeping cuts away from the classroom” CPS neighborhood high schools will see big cuts to their budgets next fall. In addition, Catalyst reports that “welcoming” schools will see an average 5% cut and charters will see a gain of $43 million as the district continues to open more charter schools in the fall. 

CPS will be voting on this budget on July 23rd and will have budget hearings (which they haven’t announced yet) sometime before this date.

RYH will be having a budget training in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more info.
