CHICAGO — Because of a massive drop in enrollment, Chicago Public Schools officials laid off 134 teachers and 103 members of schools' support staffs, CPS officials said Tuesday.
That is six fewer teachers and six fewer members of the support staff than originally announced Monday by CPS officials.
District spokeswoman Emily Bittner said administrators "continued to work with principals throughout the day to adapt the use of their funds to keep as many teachers as possible."
The job losses were prompted by a 3.5 percent drop in CPS enrollment between the 2015-16 school year and the 2016-17 school year.
During the last 10 years, enrollment has fallen 6.8 percent at public schools in Chicago, with half of that drop coming since September 2015, according to CPS enrollment data.
CPS enrollment dropped from 392,285 during the 2015-16 school year to 378,481 this year for a total drop of 13,804 students, CPS officials said.
The enrollment drop means cuts at 306 schools throughout the city will total $44.9 million, according to a statement from CPS officials. However, schools where those cuts "would prevent them from offering critical academic programming" will get an additional $12.5 million, CPS officials said.
NOTE: If a school is not listed in the table below, it did not lose any teachers or members of its support staff.
