While state funding has increased by $1,572 per student for all other districts, CPS’s state funding has decreased by $459 per student.  Even though CPS’ share of state enrollment has remained flat at 20%, its share of state funding has declined every year.  Even though other districts’ share of state enrollment has remained flat at 80%, their share of state funding has increased every year.  Illinois is last among all states in providing resources for high poverty school districts, according to the national Education Trust.  The state provides only $31 per student to cover CPS pension costs, while it provides $2,266 per student for all other districts’ pension costs.  Parents, students and faculty, I encourage you to contact your state lawmakers. Ask that they not ignore the thousands of CPS students, teachers and staff who will be affected by their action.  This is not the time to cut funding for education.  Encourage them to fully fund education in Chicago and the entire state.  City Year is bringing back the John Hope Literacy Journal.  Students who submit to the journal will receive extra credit in their English & Social Science classes.  Students can submit photos, drawings, essays and poems.  Submissions accepted until February 10th.
We must design our school to address the needs of the students indicative of our population and educate each student to the highest attainable levels of academic excellence.
"Excellence Without Excuses."
Mr. Michael W. Durr, Principal
