Both the Chicago Board’s and Illinois State Board of Education’s Corey H. settlement agreements have been extended. The Chicago Board’s settlement agreement has been extended until September 1, 2012. The extension order, however, does not apply to the Chicago Public School’s obligation to implement School-Based Problem Solving. As of September 1, 2010, the Chicago Public Schools are no longer required to implement School-Based Problem Solving. Accordingly, School-Based Problem Solving is no longer a viable program and cannot be used as a pre-referral intervention strategy.
