Federal officials withhold grant money from Chicago Public Schools, citing failure to protect students from sexual abuse

 

October 2, 2018



Federal officials are withholding millions of dollars in grant money from Chicago Public Schools because of its failure to protect students from sexual violence, a rare step that signals intensifying efforts by the U.S. Department of Education to investigate complaints in the district since the Tribune exposed pervasive problems this summer.

In a letter delivered Thursday to CPS, the department said it has suspended the funds from an ongoing magnet schools assistance grant because CPS cannot show it is meeting its civil rights obligations to address specific sexual violence complaints or districtwide patterns of harm.
