Aspen: "one stop shop for student data" says McDade w/ report. (I find the platform clumsy & cluttered thus far. Just want the grade & link to assignments. I have to click about 5 times to get there- tho I haven't found the assignments yet.) #cpsboard

Student #cpsboard member: how can students find out abt reporting & how can CPS ensure that a student who reports sexual abuse will not be bullied or excluded from their education but will instead be supported through the process? (I'm having a hard time hearing in overflow room)
J Jackson says that next year's Student Code of Conduct will include a Student Bill of Rights at the very beginning. Interesting. #cpsboard

Concern about charter school reporting rates from @CPSOIG #cpsboard
Clark and Jackson asking some questions about the charter reporting concerns. I'm having a hard time hearing in overflow (ppl talking). I think Clark is emphasizing that the @CPSOIG has as much authority over charters as district run schools? #cpsboard
#cpsboard member asking for briefing next month on charter reporting (not sure who is talking) Says there's enuf evidence to show that there's possible under reporting at charter schools re: sexual allegations. Says there's "something strange" going on & BOE needs more info.

PreK presentation done. BOE member Ward asks if any Ps want 1/2 day programming? CPS person: they are listening to principals and some parents are asking for that. He adds: They are listening but they also need to educate on the importance of the need for full day PreK #cpsboard
Student #cpsboard member asking another question. Kudos! Asking of transportation is provided for PreK students- parents work. Answer is that transportation is very limited. Trying to reduce travel & open spots where students live
CEO's report done but Pres Clark calling someone up to speak. It's DeNard, CPS budget & finance. Clark is asking him to repeat what he said that budget meets all expenses and may be in even better shape than that. DeNard says CPS is "on track" budget wise. #Franksplaining
