CHICAGO - High school students in Chicago Public Schools will begin returning to classrooms on Monday, with a chance to get vaccinated.
The Chicago Teachers Union said the deal with CPS includes a clause to vaccinate students and their families against COVID-19. The return date coincides with Chicago's expansion of vaccine eligibility to 16- and 17-year-olds on Monday.
The CTU said the vaccination clause is the first to be negotiated in the country.
The deal means that Chicago Public Schools will now have in-person learning options for every grade level.
