The amount of money schools receive for each enrolled student will increase by 2.5 percent, boosting the district’s base per-pupil rate to $4,397 and more than two thirds of the 626 schools are receiving more funds. That per-pupil increase also applies to city charter schools. The extra spending on the privately operated schools is expected even though CPS said recent changes to state law require the district to cut $38 million worth of charter funding next year.
The Chicago tribute released the report. So Bowen is looking to get a slight increase. I don’t think its where it should be but hey its a start and the fight continues.
