    Yes, if someone knows please let us know. The helicopter was circling right after a shoot in on 92nd May but maybe it wasn't related?

Sutherland LSC VOTE APRIL 7th 2014 - GET OUT AND VOTE FACTS

OFFICIAL RESPONSE FROM CPS UPPER ADMIN: SUTHERLAND HAS SEEN SUBSTANTIAL GROWTH IN CRITICAL INDICATORS OF SUCCESS. In hopes of stopping the spread of misinformation that would have our community believe that Sutherland is on the decline, I asked CPS CEO Barbara Byrd Bennett to give a definitive answer to how state test scores should be read.

Good evening,
The problem in comparing ISAT scores from the state report card is that a major change in cut scores occurred in 2013 and because of that, meets/exceeds scores dropped state-wide. You'll find this pattern reflected in the school's scores, as well as state scores. Comparing the 2012-13 results with 2011-12 results and assuming a decrease in relative performance is not appropriate.
Scores on the School Profile Report suggest strong growth in both reading and math. Sutherland has also shown a reduction in suspensions and strong 5Essentials results.
While we take no position in LSC election matters, the School Profile Report data are indeed reliable and indicate substantial growth in critical indicators of school performance at Sutherland in the 2012-13 school year.
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
John Barker

  • Morgan Park Resident, are any members of the LSC aware of this problem? Have you talked to them? To be honest, I don't really think that's an LSC issue. If someone is driving recklessly and nearly hitting you or the children with their cars you should call the police. You should also get their plates.

  • Also, I thought the attendance boundries for Sutherland end at 107th Street on the south, which excludes Morgan Park residents from using the school. Is that information incorrect?

How Irish is Chicago? St. Patrick's Day Traditions Part of City's History

In 1979, Coakley and other kids from his neighborhood "walked along our block, 109th and Washtenaw" in the first South Side Irish Parade. The kids' parents hung flags and cheered them on, and the parade grew each year.
