From The Chicago Tribune: An annual scorecard on the district’s performance and greater accountability throughout the system are some of the promises outlined in the first long-term plan for Chicago Public Schools issued since Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office. Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett vowed that the public will be able to track CPS’ progress in areas including parental engagement and will also be able to see how many principals and teachers are rated as high performers, under guidelines in the five-year “action plan.”
