CPS seeks funding for Common Core curriculum
Noreen S. Ahmed-Ullah
Chicago Public Schools is hoping to secure $600,000 in private funding to launch a more rigorous Common Core curriculum at 60 schools this year.
The schools will get an early start in preparing for testing that will begin in 2014-2015.
Teachers at 35 schools will meet monthly and get ongoing professional development and full planning support. Another 25 schools will get to start early as well and get a chance to collaborate, but they will not receive full support from central office.
