According to the CPS website:

The Chicago Public Schools FY2011 Proposed Budget Book is the proposed financial and policy plan of the Chicago Public Schools for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2010, and ends June 30, 2011. The fiscal year encompasses 12 months, as mandated by the 1995 Amendatory Act enacted by the Illinois legislature.

The FY2011 Proposed Budget Book includes line-item expenditure details, summary financial tables, and narrative overviews of CPS programs, goals, and financial policies and procedures.

The Proposed Budget Book also contains snapshots of individual school budgets to provide readers with an at-a-glance view of school based budgets and demographics that impact the budgets. These snapshots are included in the Schools at a Glance section. Departmental budget summaries are also included.

Public hearings about the budget will take place in August at the locations and times listed below. The Chicago Board of Education will discuss and vote on the FY2011 budget at its August 25 board meeting.

About Patrick Boylan

Patrick grew up near LaFollette Park on the West Side. He contends that the very best Italian beef sandwiches are made on the West Side and has a strange love of the flat pizza from that part of the city. Patrick led The Bulldog to win seven journalism awards in 2011, including four awards to Patrick as a solo or a team member. He is very proud of The Dog's coverage of politics and schools in the neighborhood. Patrick wrote for the Times of Northwest Indiana as a stringer covering Cook County Government, for the Chicago Tribune as a stringer on the Chicago Wolves and for ChicagoNow as a writer before starting The Dog. He wrote for four years for ChiTownDailyNews.org as a media commentator and spent about 20 years in operations at city newspapers, including nine years as owner of his own distribution company. Prior to that he spent about nine years in public relations. Patrick has a Masters degree from the University of Colorado. He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden. Patrick purchased the property in 1994 and "couldn't afford to buy it now." His daughter is a college student in California. He lives in the house with his wife, Jane, and two cats who often sit in on his phone interviews.
