March 5, 2013
Officials estimate that moving to a smaller site would save $2 million to $3 million

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.
