Chicago Public Schools are putting more money into magnet schools and all-day kindergarten.
New Schools Chief Jean-Claude Brizard announced the move at Wednesday’s board meeting.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that $5 million will go to expanding magnet schools, and $15 million is being earmarked to double the number of students in all-day kindergarten.
The money comes from cuts that have been made to the central office.
Brizard said CPS is cutting in areas that do not impact the classroom.
