Anyone else hold their child back from CPS

This is a big concern of mine as my child is eligible for kindergarten this fall but I honestly feel he isn't ready emotionally or academically. I decided to hold my son back and he will start kindergarten next year at a private school. My plans are to send him there until 1st or 2nd grade. Is it possible to switch to a cps school at a later date? Any advice or recommendations?

    My husband made the previous comment. Now it's my turn :)
    Do what is best for your child. If you choose to come back to CPS you may request the grade your child is to be enrolled so long as it is not above the norm age level grade unless you have appropriate paperwork to prove they belong a year ahead. The only time that grade level placement will be a potential concern is when your child is in middle school. If your student will be 15 prior to September 1st, they will be automatically enrolled as a high school freshman. It's a bizarre concept but that's how most school systems function.
    Personally, have mixed feelings about private schools, like any school system there are good and bad. If your child needs additional support (such as a 504 or an IEP) please do yourself a favor and go to public school. CPS handles all educational support services for students with IEPs and 504s in the city and it is much, much easier as a parent to have those handled at the school your child attends with teachers and counselors who work with your child daily.

    If you're still looking outside CPS, check out Montessori schools when you're scoping out options.

Experiences with apartment searching in early spring/late winter?

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March.

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

We know that the October 1st lease starting time is one of the busiest and most fast paced rental seasons, but we may not be able to invest the time in August and September that is needed to snap up a nice apartment so we are seriously considering the April start date alternative.

So I am asking if any of you have any experience with the April start date rental market. Do there tend to be a decent amount of properties available in a variety of neighborhoods? Do the prices fluctuate at all? Is it silly to think that the market at that time won't be as ideal?

Any and all information or anecdotes you could send our way would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

    first, I have a one-bedroom I'm renting in OIP

    rules on peek times (April - June) - (Sept - Oct)
    if you haven't noticed, rents are CrazE high priced during those times. It's all due to demand.
    I've gotten a ton of people come by but they expect too much; free utilities, cable and parking in my garage. But I'm very picky on potential renters also.

    My house is huge (I live in the duplex upstairs) and some think they can still bring in pets (No Pets!)

    here's some pointers;
    a. are you prepared to move (first months rent + security, knowing you may not get your sec. from your current LL for 30 days)?
    b. do you want to move? you can still look, you don't have to commit - this gives you an idea on neighborhood and conveniences.
    c. what's out there (apts) that is of more interest than where you're at now?
    d. (and most important) will your credit check out?

    Happy hunting and good luck - I was a happy renter until 2010; what a great time to buy that was!

    I came home to find my kitty unresponsive and barely breathing. I put her in my arms and rushed to the first place I could think of, giving CPR over her mouth at stop lights, and drove to Cat Hospital on Irving Park. They took her in immediately, were compassionate and excellent emergency care. She was almost 19 years old and she has been with us ever since we picked her up at an apple farm in Michigan. I was able to contact my son in Australia so he could say his goodbyes and nurses were supportive during the transition time that followed as our wonderful cat passed on. I had taken her there only one other time many years ago but they treated her with kindness and quick response. My regular vet is a traveling vet and comes to the house and always spent a good hour when we had her check-ups, shots, or anything else. He rents space if surgery is needed. That's why I needed to go somewhere immediately and Cat Hospital was there for us. Our kitty gave us so much joy and fun times. We miss her so.
