Also please explain what benefits this brings to quincy as a whole not just to the downtown.

Can somebody tell me what is wrong with grass??? We had a vacant eyesore there for 30 years. Provided they keep it mowed, there is nothing wrong with a little open space

Cutbacks attributed to declining enrollment

From suntimes.com:

Chicago Public Schools announced staff layoffs on Thursday for 550 teachers and 600 other school staffers.

That’s in addition to the 147 staffers (including 76 teachers) who got pink slips since they worked at three schools confirmed this spring for a turnaround in which the entire staff loses their jobs.

Approximately 1,150 employees were notified Thursday their schools would not retain them in the fall due to fewer kids expected to show up. That’s about half the number who got pink-slipped last year in the wake of a historic number of school closings, and district officials said on Thursday they believed that like last year, about 60 percent would be rehired at other CPS schools.

“The staffing changes are driven by declining student enrollment at each of the affected schools,” said schools chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett. CPS also said that schools are projected to have 1,780 teaching vacancies in the fall, 1,420 of which are full-time slots. The affected teachers can apply for those positions cleared by retirements and transfers, she said.

The district didn’t say how many non-teaching jobs might come open, but said the impacted jobs spanned 50 job descriptions such as clerks, part-time security and classroom assistants. Job fairs will be held later in the summer.

Telephone calls began Thursday to those getting the bad news, said Alicia Winckler, the CPS official in charge of hiring. About 171 schools had no layoffs at all.

Chicago Teachers Union officials could not be reached immediately for comment.

As of Thursday afternoon, CPS would not provide a list of affected schools or positions nor would they provide a breakdown of elementary schools vs high schools, saying only that 1/3 of district-operated schools were affected.
