WTTW: CPS Enrollment Declines By 6,000 Students

CPS enrollment figures were released on Friday
CPS on Friday announced a 20th-day enrollment total of 355,156 students for the 2019-20 school year. That’s down from last year’s total of 361,314, but based on the graduation totals and enrollment rates, the drop-off is actually smaller than CPS projected with its own data model.

“We’re pleased that more students are enrolling in kindergarten, matriculating to higher grades and graduating, which serves as a testament to the hard work of our dedicated educators and school communities,” said CPS CEO Dr. Janice Jackson. “While there are signs of encouragement, we are fully committed to supporting school communities that are struggling with enrollment by providing additional resources through equity grants and a budgeting approach that promotes stability.”
