CPS to get almost billion-dollar boost for schools


Chicago Public Schools are getting a nearly billion-dollar boost for new schools  But no one is saying exactly where that money is coming from.

Among the highlights of the $989-million-dollar capital plan is a new $70-million dollar high school building on the west side, with the exact location still not determined.

Also, a $75-million-dollar replacement for Hancock High School on the southwest side, $30-million dollars for upgradesto Dirksen, $24-million for Waters, and $20-million each for Palmer and Rogers schools.

There will also be new camera and security systems at 50 schools, and 30 schools will get new or rehabbed athletic spaces and fields.
