Item 5: Military Service Leaves

In compliance with Illinois School Code and a Resolution passed by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago
on September 26, 2001, a leave of absence shall be granted to all officers and employees of the Chicago Public
Schools who, as current members of Reserve components of the Armed Forces of the United States, are called to
active duty by Executive Order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
For the duration of such leaves of absence, officers and employees will be paid the difference, if any, between the
amount of the officers’ or employees’ daily basic CPS salaries and the compensation paid such officers or
employees for the performance of their military duty.

    •    All applications for such leaves must be accompanied by the official military orders to report to active duty.

                                                     3
    •   A pay voucher or a statement signed by the commanding officer substantiating the amount of compensation
        received for military duty must accompany the application.

If, for any reason, it is not possible to submit official military orders or pay vouchers with application, said orders and
pay vouchers must be submitted to the Employee Services Unit of Human Resources as soon as possible (320 N.
Elizabeth, First Floor, Chicago, IL 60607).

Employee Benefits
For up to 18 months from the start date of a leave for active medical duty, medical and dental coverage will continue
for employees on such leaves (and their covered dependents) who are enrolled in CPS group healthcare programs.
Life insurance coverage will be extended for up to twelve (12) months and long-term disability coverage will be
extended up to three (3) months from the start date of leaves for active military service.
Employees will not be required to pay medical premiums during the terms of military leaves. Payment coupons for
Optional Life, Personal Accident, and Long-term Disability premiums will be sent to the homes of employees on
military leaves on a bi-weekly basis. Premiums and voluntary benefit contributions will not be deducted from payroll
checks.
Upon return to active employment with the CPS, employees whose active military leave extended beyond the
established time limits for coverage will have such coverage immediately reinstated.

Item 6: Sec. 6-19 Distribution, Exhibition and Collection of Books, Maps and other
                   Written Materials

    No person shall be permitted to exhibit to teachers or pupils in any school building any book, map or other
    article, or to read or announce in any form an advertisement or a notice of an advertisement or to distribute on

    Authorized distribution may take place at designated entrances and exits of the school building, in the main

    materials except as incidental thereto. (Amended 12-16-81; 04-21-82)

        No written materials, questionnaires or other articles shall be returned to or collected in the schools unless
        authorized by the General Superintendent of Schools. Procedures for the return or collection of authorized

        of these regulations established by school principals to govern the distribution, exhibition, return and
        collection of all materials. (Adopted 04-21-82)

Item 7: Residency Policy
    On August 25, 2004, the Board of Education of the City of Chicago rescinded Residency Policy 01-0822-P02
    and adopted a new Residency Policy (04-0825-P02) for all full-time employees of the Board of Education.

        Below are frequently asked questions regarding the Residency Policy of the Board of Education. We hope
        that the answers to these questions will inform you on your compliance status with this policy. If you have
        additional questions, please contact Teacher Recruitment and Workforce Planning at 553-1045.

    Why does the Board have a residency policy?

        The Board believes that a policy requiring employees to reside within the city limits of Chicago best
        serves the educational and governmental purposes of the Board. Factors involved in the decision
        for adopting a residency policy include:
                                                      4
       •   Enhanced quality of performance of duties by employees who, as residents of the city,
           have an increased personal stake in the progress of the Chicago Public Schools and more
           awareness of conditions existing in the system.
       •   Employees residing in the city are more likely to have contact with community leaders and
           citizens through public school and community activities.
       •   Absenteeism and tardiness among employees will decrease.
       •   A residency policy benefits Chicago and the CPS economically through the payment of
           local sales tax and real estate taxes by CPS employees and educationally through the
           vested interest in the system by its employees.

Whom does the Board’s Residency Policy cover?

   All Board employee are covered by the Residency Policy, except for:

           1)      day-to-day substitute teachers
           2)      part-time employees
           3)      full-time provisional substitute teachers
           4)      individuals working in the Troops-to -Teachers program
           5)      interns working for the Board on a part-time or temporary basis
           6)      individuals participating in professional training programs designed to prepare
                   participants for full-time employment as CPS educators or in Alternative
                   Certification Programs

Must all employees hired on or after November 20, 1996, reside within the city limits of
Chicago?

   Yes. All employees hired on or after November 20, 1996, are required to be actual residents of the
   City of Chicago within six months of beginning employment with the Board.

Must employees hired before November 20, 1996 resides in Chicago?

   No. All employees hired prior to November 20, 1996, who have remained continuously employed
   by the Board shall not be required to live within the city limits of Chicago regardless of whether
   such employees have moved into the city since November 20, 1996.

How does the Board define “continuously employed”?

   The Board defines “continuously employed,” as employment not interrupted by a break in service.
   A break in service refers to a loss of employment as a result of discharge, separation, and/or
   resignation not followed by rehire within one year. However, in accordance with the Reassigned
   Teachers policy, teachers whose positions were closed who secured full-time positions within two
   years following honorable termination from the system shall not be considered to have had a break
   in service for purposes of this policy.

What happens to an employee hired prior to November 20, 1996, who experiences a break in
service after November 20, 1996?

   An employee hired prior to November 20, 1996, who has had a break in service after November
   20, 1996, will be required to reside in Chicago within six months after returning to full-time
   employment with the Board if not rehired within a year of experiencing the break in service.

What is meant by “residency”?

   “Residency” refers to an employee’s domicile, the one actual place where an employee lives and
   has his or her true, permanent home to which, whenever he or she is absent, he or she has an
   intention of returning.

Are employees obligated to inform the Board of a new residence?



                                             5
       Employees must provide the Board with a Change of Address form within 60 days after changing
       residency. Notification to the Board of a change of residency shall be made using the procedures,
       forms, and documentation established and provided by the Department of Human Capital.

   Where can employees obtain Change of Address forms and where should the forms be
   submitted?

       Change of Address forms can be obtained at the local schools, downloaded from the Human
       Resources website (www.cps-humanresources.org/), or picked up at the Staffing Unit of the
       Department of Human Capital. Employees are asked to complete all relevant sections, sign, date,
       and submit the original completed forms to the:

               Department of Human Capital
               Staffing Unit (GSR #125)

   What happens to employees in violation of the Board’s Residency Policy?

       The Board adopts a Warning Resolution against any principal or tenured teacher found to be in
       violation of the residency policy. Such individuals will be notified that they are subject to discharge
       if they fail to reside in Chicago within six months of receiving notification of the Warning
       Resolution. Those failing and/or refusing to comply with the Warning Resolution will be subject to
       discharge.

       Similarly, all Board employees, other than tenured teachers and principals, subject to the Board’s
       residency requirements who violate the residency policy, shall receive a written warning signed by
       the Chief Executive Officer indicating that the employees may be discharged if they fail to establish
       residence in Chicago within six months after receipt of the warnings. Again, failure or refusal to
       comply with the written warnings will subject employees to discharge.

         NOTE: Any Board employee who intentionally provides (or provided) falsified documents
         and/or residential address to avoid the requirements of this policy shall be subject to
         immediate discharge without the need for a written warning.
   Are employees in special needs positions automatically exempt?

       No. Employees hired on or after November 20, 1996, working in positions in assessed special
       needs areas must continue to work in those positions to be exempt from the policy. In the event,
       such an employee no longer works in such a position or the area is no longer assessed as a
       special needs area, the employee must establish residency in Chicago within six months of the
       start of the school year immediately following the change in position or re-assessment of area.

   Can hardship exemptions to live outside the City of Chicago be obtained?

       No.

   Can employees apply for and receive extensions to the six-month grace period for establishing
   residency within Chicago?

       No.

Item 8: FTBs and FTPs Evaluation of Transcripts has been Discontinued
   Effective May 1, 1997, the State Board of Education discontinued the evaluation of transcripts for Full
   Time Basis Substitutes and for Full Time Provisional. An approved teacher education program will be
   required in order to acquire a standard teaching certificate. If additional information is needed, please
   contact the Department of Human Capital at (773) 553-2690.


Item 9: Legislative Changes Made by Illinois State Board of Education


                                                   6
Effective July 1, 2004, the Illinois State Board of Education amended the rules governing teacher certification,
recertification, procedures guiding assignment to teaching positions, and criteria used for determining highly
qualified status under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.

The purpose of this correspondence is to notify Chicago Public School Teachers that these changes have
been made and to urge teachers to log onto the appropriate websites to learn more about the new policies and
procedures.

One of the more significant changes expands the criteria for teachers to be deemed highly qualified. In addition
to previously established criteria, teachers must now be endorsed (or have the coursework equivalent) in a
particular subject area to be considered highly qualified in that subject area.

More detailed explanations are available by logging onto the following websites:

• www.isbe.state.il.us/nclb/

• www.isbe.state.il.us/certification/default.htm

Regarding certification and recertification guidance from CPS, please contact the Professional Development
Unit’s Assessment and Compliance team at renewcert@cps.k12.il.us.

New and current employees seeking to apply for the ESP NCLB Annual Salary Increase must complete
and submit an application to the Department of Human Resources’ Employee Services Department.
Procedures for applying are as follows:
• Complete and file the form entitled Chicago Public Schools’ Application for Review of Credentials
   for PSRP NCLB Title Upgrades.
                                                    7
•   Submit an official copy of college transcripts from an accredited college or university to the
    Department of Human Central’ Employee Services Department.
•   An application will only be considered when all official transcripts are on file with the Department
    of Human Capital’ Employee Services Department and all sections of the application have been
    completed.
•   At the time of filing transcripts and/or the application, the Department of Human
•   Capital’ Employee Services Department will issue, upon request, a date/time stamped photocopy of
    these documents. The employee should retain these photocopies for his/her records.
•   Proper claim (the completed application and all official transcripts) must be made within 60
    calendar days from the date of completing the degree coursework requirements in order for the
    effective date of the salary increase to be retroactive to the date of degree coursework completion.
•   For claims submitted after 60 calendar days from the date of completing the degree coursework
    requirements, the effective date of the salary increase is the date on which the Department of
    Human Capital’ Employee Services Department receives proper claim (the completed Application
    for Review of Credentials for PSRP NCLB Title Upgrades and all official transcripts). The
    Department of Human Capital’ Employee Services Department will process the Application for
    Review of Credentials for PSRP NCLB Title Upgrades, submit a position change request in Oracle,
    notify the employee’s principal and submit requests for retroactive salary increases to the Bureau
    of Payroll and Payables in cases where retroactive adjustments are necessary.

In the event that an employee in one of the upgraded job titles leaves their position, only a candidate
possessing an associate’s degree or higher may be staffed into the vacant position. If a principal
wishes to fill the vacancy with an individual who does not possess an associate’s degree or higher, the
principal is responsible for submitting a request to Oracle to downgrade the position to a job title not
requiring an associate’s degree or higher.

Chicago Public Schools has set minimum qualifications that principal candidates must demonstrate in order to
be offered a contract. The process by which principal candidates demonstrate those qualifications is called the
Eligibility process and is administered by the Office of Principal Preparation and Development. Candidates are
required to successfully complete Eligibility and be admitted to the Principal Candidate Pool prior to being
offered a principal contract. For more information, please see Eligibility Requirements for a CPS Principalship
below.

Principals for individual schools are selected or recommended by each school’s Local School Council (LSC),
an group comprised of parents, teachers and community members. LSCs interview principal candidates and
vote on final selections or recommendations from the Principal Candidate Pool.

Selection of CPS principals will be consistent with the Policy and Requirements for the Selection and Retention

amended March 26, 1997 (97-0326-P04) and February 25, 1998 (98-0225-P02) and December 17, 2008 (#08-

                                                    11

V. Local School Council Selection Process

Local School Councils will receive all candidate resumes and applications within three (3) business days
following the Application Deadline along with verification of each candidate’s Eligibility status. Each Local
School determines their own interview process and timetable. Local School Councils may vote to select a
principal candidate at any time following initial screening of candidates but often hold multiple interviews in
order to select the most qualified candidate for their school. Many LSCs host candidate forums which are an
opportunity for the school community to meet finalist candidates.

Local School Councils will contact candidates directly to schedule and conduct interviews for their school.
Therefore, CPS cannot provide updates to candidates on the status of their application.

According to Eligibility Requirements for a CPS Principalship (Board Policy 08-1217-P02), Local School
Councils must request a Candidate Profile from the Office of Principal Preparation and Development prior to
selecting a principal. Candidate Profiles are prepared by OPPD and contain information about your work
history, Eligibility results, criminal background check results and disciplinary history (if a CPS employee).
Eligibility results include information about how you scored on each of the Principal Competencies and/or
Success Factors measured during the Eligibility Process. The Local School Chairperson requests Candidate
Profiles for finalists during the interview process before a vote on principal selection.

VI. Consent to Release of Candidate Profile

By applying for a principal position, candidates consent to the release of their Candidate Profile to authorized
employees or agents of Chicago Public Schools, the Board of Education and/or Local School Council
members. If you have any questions about what is contained in your Candidate Profile, please call the Office
of Principal Preparation and Development at (773) 553-1515.
VII. Residency Requirements (Board Policy 04-0825-P02)

All employees of the Chicago Public Schools must adhere to the Residency Policy for All Employees of the
Board of Education, adopted by Board Action on November 20, 1996, Board Report Number 04-0825-P02. All

of the City of Chicago within six months from the day their employment begins.

VIII. Salary Schedule

six (6) hour day teacher’s monthly salary or current administrative grade monthly salary. For principals new to
