Year-round schools back in session on Monday

August 4, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Among the schools opening its doors on Monday is Ryerson Elementary on the West Side. The staff was there on Thursday preparing for the students' return.

A teacher says with the short summer break, students retain more of what they've learned.

The first day of class for Chicago Public Schools students on the regular track is Tuesday, September 6. Charter schools all have their own opening days. Parents should call their children's school to get the date.
