Chicago district may sell its downtown headquarters

The Chicago school district is looking to sell its headquarters and downsize its central office staff, district officials said. Chicago says the district believes it can save $2 million to $3 million annually by moving from its central office on 125 S. Clark St. to a smaller location. About 1,090 school district employees work in the 500,000-square-foot headquarters, about 30 percent below 2009 levels.
