Parents and guardians,
Catastrophe looms over all our public schools - unless we act now! In just two weeks, CPS may be forced to cut 5,000 teachers and slash educational programs, unless state politicians break their political deadlock and plug a $500 million budget shortfall. CPS students have protested impending budget cuts (click here to see the coverage)
It's time we parents also made our voices heard! Parents of Payton and Jones
are leading the way, join them this Tuesday!
SHOW UP AT OUR RALLY ON 11/17
Join a rally to protest state budget cuts impacting CPS:
Tuesday, November 17th - 3:45 PM to 5 PM - Thompson Center (100 W. Randolph St.)
We'll meet on the plaza outside the Thompson Center, which houses the offices of Illinois state government. We need to show up in force, bring everyone you can.

Congratulations HEARST community, the new School Quality Ratings were released and HEARST is now a Level 2+ school! See the report HERE
For those who aren't aware, every school in CPS is given one of five ratings, either a 1+, 1, 2+, 2, or 3. Last year HEARST, based on the data from two years ago, was a level 2 school (off of probation) but not removed from provisional supports. Several metrics kept HEARST from achieving LEVEL 1 rating, but based on last year's data the school showed more gains and achieved an overall weighted score of 3.2! That is a 60% increase!!! We have worked extremely hard to get here. Please reflect on the great work you have done and the next steps you will take to build your capacity and the Results of our students. Hearst will attain a LEVEL 1 when we reach 3.5 total weighted points on the SQRP.
That’s an increase of just over 9%. Our LEVEL 1 status will depend on the work we do to increase rigor and ensure that EVERY student receives Standards based instruction. HEARST is a school on the RISE
Congratulations to all the faculty, staff, students, parents, and community!
