STUDENT BASED BUDGETING
Authors: Sarah Karp and Valerie F. Leonard Presenter: Valerie F. Leonard
March 11, 2014
 
Acknowledgments:
 
This presentation was developed for the Austin Community Action Council using slides from
“Catalyst’s Cheat Sheet CPS Budgeting
and School
Closings” and “School Pictures… Featuring Snapshots of the Condition of West Side Schools”
town hall meeting series. We give a special thanks to Sarah Karp, Deputy Editor of Catalyst-Chicago Magazine, and Dwayne Truss, Board Member, Raise Your Hand.
 
Background
Citing a need to close a looming
“billion dollar deficit” and to correct a “utilization crisis”, the Chicago Board
of Education voted to close 49 public schools and 1 high school program in June 2013.
The West Side took a significant hit.
23 of 49 schools are on the West Side of Chicago, representing 47% of all school closures in 2013.
The West Side is home to 17% of all schools in Chicago
