illi News/10242476

CHICAGO - illiNews -- Chicago Public Schools (CPS) proudly revealed that enrollment numbers for the academic year 2021-2022 have stabilized. This welcome news follows several years of decreasing student enrollments that had raised concerns amongst district officials and stakeholders.

The stabilization signifies a significant shift for CPS, as only a year prior, the district faced an alarming decline of over 6,000 students. However, this academic year has witnessed an encouraging trend, with the district reporting enrollment numbers just slightly below 340,000 students, closely aligning with their projections.

Several initiatives and factors have played into this reversal. Primarily, the impact of federal relief funds, which were directed towards addressing the hardships faced by families during the pandemic, has played a crucial role. The funds, aimed at helping school districts like CPS, have undoubtedly created a positive change.
