CPS Middle School Students Returning To Classrooms Monday


CHICAGO (CBS)– Chicago Public Schools middle schoolers are getting ready for their first day back at school.

Sixth through eighth grade students are back to in-person learning Monday.

Kindergarteners and first through fifth graders returned last week.

CPS is still having a trouble finding enough teachers for their classrooms as nearly 4,000 are staying remote. More than 400 teachers are taking an unpaid leave of absence.

The district wants to hire 600 more substitutes and part-time staff.

On Monday, CPS is also asking families with high schoolers if they want to return to classrooms this year.

The district and the teachers union are meeting this week to talk about how to make that happen.
