Chicago Public Schools Strike: How Parents Can Prepare & Support Their Kids!

Members of the Chicago Teachers Union voted (HEAVILY) in favor of a strike, possibly starting as early as October 11. How can the parents of CPS students prepare for the disruption?

  • Check in with child-activity businesses, such as ClassCrasher.com, for updates on day camp offerings during the strike.
  • Gather grade level appropriate math workbooks, reading books and a writing journal. While your child is out of school, try to get 5 to 20 minutes (depending on your child's age) of daily work in for reading, math and writing.
