Hello Future Neighbors

My husband, 4th grade daughter and I are hoping to move to Edgebook soon and would appreciate any tips or insights you might have on the neighborhood and on Edgebrook Elementary.

Thanks and Cheers,
Patti

  • There are a TON of great things to love about Edgebrook too(including some negative people): cute little downtown with library, ice cream shop, cute stores, excellent public school, forest preserve right there for bike path/running path to Botanic Garden, proximity to expressways and downtown!

  • Love Edgebrook!

    CPS Announces Revised Bus Stops for SY 15-16
    For students, this change will mean traveling an additional two blocks on average to reach their bus stop. Families have been notified of their children's new stop, which in most cases is the bus stop nearest to their home. If they have concerns about their child's assignment, however, parents may choose another nearby option.

    CJ, they’re not using the bus-cutting savings to hire more or better teachers. Casey, when my son was in high school the state was still reimbursing for transit, but that was over a decade ago so you may be correct.

  • @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation...

    @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation this way: Someplace c. 1965 Chicago's public schools were found to be separate and unequal, with substantially more being spent on neighborhood schools in white neighborhoods than schools in black neighborhoods (Hispanics, Asians and others did not register at the time). The school system was told to level the spending but that proved too hard to do in an acceptable way. So the court decided to let parents bus their kids to a school of choice, making the disparate spending patterns less motivating/source of complaint. White percentage of students in the system went into rapid decline and now is someplace c 11 - 13% (depends on who's stats you believe). So the courts recently said there was no longer a reason to bus for integration & level spending. But the bus habit remains because some schools/areas are deemed more desirable than others. And by direct awareness in some cases the long bus ride constitutes a free baby sitting service. TL:DR = the CPS tries to budget educational program costs uniformly across the whole City. Separate from that the buses cost c. $50 millions?? a year because of parents chasing after schools with better reputations --- which might or might not be factually supported depending on the compared schools.

    TL:TL:DR Busing is not cutting into staffing.

Where was our alderman?

During our outage he was nowhere to be seen. Only 54 of our homes were affected. Perhaps he didn't think we were that important. Very disappointed in our newly elected official

  • Sorry to hear that. You might want to try 311 then.

    My email has been blowing up with seeclickfix.com reports of downed trees. They have mostly been cut up, and are waiting for the chipper. Interestingly, the mayor toured the damage in the 49th ward, but not the 50th; it seems our alderman may have fallen out of favor
