In June, CPS introduced three important policies to the Chicago Board of Education. They were approved in order to help empower students, offer families greater choice, and to better align the 'school quality rating program' to the districts Five-Year Vision. They are as follows: 1) *Accelerated Placement Act Policy: This policy provides options for families seeking accelerated educational opportunities for their students including: early enrollment in Kindergarten, grade acceleration for students in 3rd to 6th grades, and single subject acceleration. This program is meant to open doors for all students to reach their full potential. *Which was signed by the Governor on August 25th, 2017 to mandate that all school districts in Illinois adopt policies that provide placement of students to their appropriate curriculum-level. 2) SQRP 2.0: Essentially CPS is fine-tuning their previously existing school rating policy. These changes will include: Grade 3-8 OnTrack as a formal factor in rating students success in high school, the high school model will be implementing 'Learn.Plan.Succeed' as a formal factor for rating to the college enrollment metrics, and the creation of models for specialty high schools and detention centers as they were not previously rated. Every school in our ward is either a Level 1 or Level 1+ per the latest ARA in fall 2018, which means we are in Good Standing. The SQRP program emphasizes growth in order to create more equitable ratings for schools, and these changes should help them improve that goal. 3) Student Bill of Rights & Code of Conduct: The Student Code of Conduct was revised for the 2019-2020 school year to include: shifting focus towards therapeutic responses to drug use by students, including prohibiting the use of vaporizer devices that contain tobacco or other illegal substances in CPS schools, updates made to the Anti-Bullying policy to align better with the Non-Discrimination Policy, and revisions to the sexual misconduct codes to better align with Title IX practices. All of these policies is for the betterment of our students, our schools, and our community.

lease feel free to let her know that CAA documented the carriage horses working on the 4th of July when it was 90-91 degrees at Northerly Island, which is too hot according to Chicago's law. I also documented 3 horses being overworked the previous Saturday and 3 horses overworked in May. Every time I monitor the horses, the operators break the law in numerous ways. Please feel free to share this recent video with her of this horse being constantly bit and bombarded by flies. This is also one of the horses who was overworked. She was still on the street at 10:35 pm, yet we documented her at 2 pm - right there, she's been overworked by 2.5 hours, but we don't know what time she left the stable - could have been 10 or 11 am, which means she was likely worked 12 hours or so, which is more than double what Chicago's law allows. Thank you very much for taking a minute to make a difference for Chicago's overworked horses! Please comment below how you took action and PLEASE don't react until you do the DAA.😎🇺🇸🗽🐴

Chicago Animal Alliance documented the carriage horses working on the 4th of July when it was 90-91 degrees at Northerly Island, which is too hot according to Chicago's law. Also documented were 3 horses being overworked the previous Saturday and 3 horses overworked in May. Every time we monitor the horses, the operators break the law in numerous ways.

🏆🏈⚽️A New Field for Lincoln Park High School It is gratifying to announce that the Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Park District have an initial plan for a new turf field for Lincoln Park High School football, soccer and other field sports. The new field will be located just east of the Diversey Driving Range. The preliminary plan, shown above, features a full sized field, bleachers and easy access to parking at the existing lot. Existing restroom facilities are near the adjacent driving range. CPS will increase the high school bus budget to ensure that athletes can readily get to the field. In addition to Lincoln Park High School sports, the field will also be available to the community in general at all other times. This is part of a larger project which includes fixing drainage in adjoining areas of Lincoln Park, and adding naturalized areas near the Barry Street underpass. We will be coordinating meetings with Lincoln Park High School sports and the Park District to ensure that the field meets the needs of our students. Construction of the field will begin as soon as plans are finalized, with the goal of opening for fall athletics. Until then, our teams will continue to use the Near North Field at North and Larrabee for practice. This culminated a multi-year effort to find a location and resources to build a field since there is no more available land in the 43rd Ward to build recreational facilities. Thanks to CPS, the Park District and the Mayor's Office for working together to help us win this for the high school and the community. A very special thanks to our neighboring Alderman Tom Tunney (44th), in whose Ward this field will be located, for supporting our vision - and understanding that our students and neighborhood athletes need space to play. We are very excited to announce this new era for the Lincoln Park Lions football, soccer and other field sports.

Aldermen Seek to Curb Burke ‘Staff-Loaning’ Habit

In January, I introduced an ordinance to stop the practice of Committee chairs "loaning" committee staff to individual Aldermen.In order to have integrity in City Council, we have to make sure some aldermen don’t have undue power over others. READ MORE

Reforms include: removing workmen’s comp from the Finance Committee, auditing it and all other Council Committees, changing City Council Rules and ethics ordinances so that an alderman with an interest in legislation can’t participate in consideration of that legislation at all, and other rules changes. Also will seek to make City Council Office of Financial Analysis completely independent. . . . . #Reform #Chicago #CityCouncil #Chicagoans #CityOfChicago #CityHall #Legislation #lincolnpark #independent #Analysis #inthe43rd #43rdWard #Ward43 #43Ward #oldtownchicago #oldtownchi #goldcoast #goldcoastchicago #lincolnparkneighborhood #LP READ MORE
