Principal Appreciation

According to the Illinois State Board of Education, Chicago Public Schools is ranked 849 out of 854 schools districts in the ratio of students to certified staff. That means CPS principals lead the MOST UNDERSTAFFED schools in Illinois.

October is National Principals Month and Principal Appreciation Week begins Monday, October 16, 2017. Let's show our support for our principals and the students they serve by pushing City Hall to staff their schools adequately.
