The deadline for faxing petitions in support of longer classroom time and academic year has been extended until Tuesday, September 6, 2011, Chicago Public School (CPS) Interfaith Director Rev. Reynaldo Kyles confirmed late last night.

The attached petition should be signed and faxed to Rev. Kyles’ new fax number: 773-553-1501.

In just four-days, more than 275,000 Chicago Public School students will return to the classroom.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPS/CEO Jean Claude Brizard are calling for longer school days and a longer academic year for the students not just because it will produce smarter children but it is also for their own safety.

For the sake of the children, please fax the attached school petition to CPS Interfaith Director Rev. Renaldo Kyles’ office at this new fax number:

773-553-1501 no later than TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2011

**NOTE: If you did not receive a petition, please call Rev. Reynaldo Kyles at: 1-773-553-2573.

I, ___________________________________, do attest that I am in full support of lengthening the school day and school year, not next year, but right now.  Chicago’s public schools provide students with 15% less instructional time than the national average. Lengthening the school day is an absolute necessity that will provide more learning time dedicated to Math, Science, and Social Studies. An extended school day will also provide a safe environment for our children to engage in art, music, reading, and physical education. I enthusiastically support this much needed initiative.
