40 new schools underway

Print More

By 2007, CPS expects to have the schools listed below up and running; some new construction is already in the works. By 2010, CPS plans to open dozens of additional new schools, to replace those in neighborhoods where public housing is being redeveloped and to relieve overcrowding. In addition, the district will also convert another 30 high schools into small schools.
