CPS: Renovations At Underutilized Uptown Schools Would Cost About $34M

Via DNAinfo.com

Ald. James Cappleman (46th) told DNAinfo.com Chicago in November that he expected “some tough decisions,” to address the high vacancy rate in schools and “wouldn’t be surprised,” if that includes school closings in Uptown. The proportion of children in the 46th Ward who are under age 18 is 12.25 percent, more than 10 percentage points lower than the city average, according to Cappleman’s office.

Filling every available space (including displacing most non-general education- such as special area teachers, English Language Learners teachers, special education teachers, Center for Native American Studies, and support for the hearing impaired- from their classrooms) would allow for 25 total general education teachers at Stockton. That would require 40.8 students per classroom in order to reach the 1020 student mark mentioned by CPS representatives in this article.
