Position Papers
Proportional Cuts
If high paid central office administrators propose cuts that take services away from kids, those cuts should be reflected proportionally in their own budgets. If they take away from students, they should also take away from themselves.
Holding Principals Accountable
It would be easily within the scope of the board for implementing, in conjunction with community input, simple systems for evaluating principals and holding them accountable for what happens in their buildings.
Research Based Curricular Reform
Board Members can influence the kind of curricular reform that really influences the experiences our kids have in CPS schools.
