The Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates voted Monday night to return to classrooms later this week if the full membership approves.

CHICAGO — Chicago’s public school students could be back in classrooms Wednesday.

The Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates voted Monday night to approve a deal with the city to end their days-long remote learning action and resume in-person learning Wednesday. Sixty-three percent of the delegates voted to send the proposal to 25,000 rank-and-file members for final approval Tuesday.

Teachers were told by their union representatives late Monday to return to classrooms Tuesday, ahead of students coming back Wednesday.

The news comes hours after dozens of schools already had called off classes Tuesday. CPS CEO Pedro Martinez confirmed Monday night that classes are off throughout the district, but many parents already had been told there will be no school for their children Tuesday because of a lack of available staffing.
