Many CPS Teachers Miss First Makeup Day After Strike


COVER CLINIC AREAS. AND ALL NURSES WILL BE PAID ON UNSHIPPINGABLE PAY GRADE WITH A COMMON STARTING HOURLY RATE. WELL, THANKSGIVING IS TOMORROW. BUT INSTEAD — IT IS? YEAH IT’S HERE. IT’S COMING. BUT INSTEAD OF HAVING THE DAY OFF STUDENTS ACROSS CHICAGO ARE SITTING IN CLASSROOMS FOR THE FIRST OF FIVE CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL MAKEUP DAYS. BUT CBS 2 HAS LEARNED MANY TEACHERS DIDN’T BOTHER SHOWING UP FOR SCHOOL. CBS 2’S ERIC COX REPORTS THE ISSUE IS PROVING TO BE A BIGGER PROBLEM AT SOME SCHOOLS MORE THAN OTHERS. Reporter: IT’S THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING. AND IT’S ALSO THE FIRST OF FIVE SCHEDULED MAKEUP DAYS FOR CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS. MEANING KIDS ARE BACK IN CLASS AND HERE AT TINKLE ELEMENTARY IN CHICAGO’S LITTLE VILLAGE NEIGHBORHOOD. ONLY TWO TEACHERS ARE OUT. BUT IN OTHER PARTS OF THE DISTRICT, THAT ISN’T THE CASE. CPS WOULDN’T SAY HOW MANY TEACHERS MISSED CLASS TODAY BUT SOME TELL ME THE SCHOOL SPENT THE MORNING SCRAMBLING TO FIND SUBSTITUTES. AT JONES COLLEGE PREP 19 TEACHERS AND STAFF MEMBERS ARE OUT WITH PREAPPROVED ABSENCES AHEAD OF THE HOLIDAY. AND RIGHT NOW, CLASS IS IN SESSION AT LANE TECH, CHICAGO’S LARGEST HIGH SCHOOL DESPITE A SHORTAGE OF 40 INSTRUCTORS. STUDENTS STILL REQUIRED TO SHOW UP. LEAVING SOME PARENTS LESS THAN EXCITED. STRESSFUL. IT’S A LITTLE DIFFICULT. JUST NOTHING MUCH THAT WE CAN DO. THE KIDS HAVE TO GO THE SCHOOL. IT’S IMPORTANT. BUT IT’S A LITTLE STRAIN ON THE PARENTS. WE JUST HAVE TO WORK AROUND THEIR SCHEDULES AND MAKE IT HAPPEN. YOU KNOW? WE’VE GOT TO BRING THEM TO SCHOOL AND TEACHERS SHOW UP. THEY SHOW UP. Reporter: AS CLASSES CONTINUE ACROSS THE DISTRICT, SOME ADMINISTRATORS SAY THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE FOUR FUTURE SCHEDULED MAKEUP DAYS
