Chicago Principals Preparing For Longer School Day

The Chicago Tribune (4/18, Ahmed-Ullah) reports on the "challenge" that Chicago principals are facing in preparing for the increased length of the school day next year, noting that budget constraints and an impasse with the teachers union are exacerbating the issue. "CPS principals have not yet been told by the district how much money they'll be getting for their schools in the coming year. At one time, school administrators received tentative budget allocations for the following school year in March. But principals said that hasn't been the case for about four years, with some blaming turnover at the top (CPS has had four chiefs in as many years)."
