How To Obtain a $200 Carson Pirie Scott Clothing Voucher

This information tells you how to obtain a $200 Chicago Public School clothing voucher, not Carson Pirie Scott.

* Student must attend a CPS school (K-12)
* Contact your child’s school and ask for a CTU (Chicago Teachers Union) delegate
* The delegate will contact Connie Thorps at CPS for an application.

That was the message that was on Ms. Thorps voicemail when I called to confirm if this was true. If you know anything different, please let me know.

Please note that you can only get a voucher every other year. You will not be eligible next year.

Contact your child’s school for more details.
