Event Information:

The Skinner North Diverse Needs Committee held an open forum for parents and caregivers to discuss and share information of their own experiences with the 2022 CPS Student Specific Corrective Action (SSCA) reimbursement process. We welcomed any Skinner North families with questions or experience with the current process, or that are were the middle of the process, to listen and share. Many thanks to parents that shared their experiences in regards to the CPS Student Specific Corrective Action (SSCA) reimbursement last week during our virtual forum.

Note from Skinner North staff about the SSCA: Individual schools are not being made aware when the district’s SSCA team reaches out to families. School staff are not informed on conclusions to any of these interactions, and the school is only included if there is a formal meeting or if there are questions regarding conclusions the team makes.

What is SSCA

(excerpted from February 2022 ODLSS Newsletter)

During the 2016–17 and 2017–18 school years, some students at CPS did not receive all Individualized Education Plan (“IEP”) services because of CPS policies that made it harder for IEP teams to give them those services. CPS is now working to give those students money for the services they missed through a project called “Student Specific Corrective Action,” or “SSCA.” CPS has reached out to all families that it has determined are eligible for a remedy, but if you believe your child was impacted during those years, visit cps.edu/ssca to take a questionnaire that will help you consider whether your child should receive a remedy. If you would like CPS to consider your child’s eligibility for a remedy, contact us to request an SSCA Meeting at ssca@cps.edu or 773-553-1843. Families must file their claim or request their SSCA Meeting by April 30, 2022, in order to receive their remedy or be considered for a remedy.
