CPS brings back gym for juniors, seniors

As part of the longer school days at Chicago Public Schools, the school board is bringing back gym for all high school juniors and seniors.

Because of a waiver that has been in place since 1997, a vast majority of juniors and seniors did not take physical education.

The board is giving CPS officials two-and-half-years to get the program in place, and hire the 200 new gym teachers.
