Coaches: Please Check, Contact and Confirm Students Registered for CDSI

We’re now two weeks away from the start of the CDSI. All coaches should check the current CDSI registration and follow up with their debaters by phone and e-mail to ensure they are confirmed and prepared to attend and succeed at our best CDSI yet.

Coaches should also e-mail David about requested lab placement/level for their students signed up.

Please note a few important details below:

  • CDSI Dates: 7/25 – 8/12, Monday through Friday, 9 am – 3 pm – students should plan to arrive by 8:45 each morning, students who arrive late or miss multiple unexcused days will be withdrawn from the camp
  • Location: Westinghouse College Prep’s beautiful, brand-new, air-conditioned building at 3223 W. Franklin.
  • Meals and transportation:Lunch and reduced-fare CTA cards are provided daily – CTA fare cards are handed out on-site only, starting on the first day of camp
  • Free Core Files: get them before anyone else
    For students who have not yet paid their $25 registration fee:

  • Registration fee per student: $25 non-refundable registration fee to ensure student attendance, all money goes back to CPS programs; students are NOT confirmed to attend the CDSI without $25 registration fee
    • Students choosing not to attend or withdraw will not have this money returned by CPS – all slots will go to motivated, participating students who benefit from CDSI
    • Checks or money orders (no cash) made out to: “Chicago Board of Education” (please note we can’t take checks or money orders made out to CDC, CDL, CPS, Westinghouse or anything else other than “Chicago Board of Education”)
    • Checks or money orders mailed to:
      Chicago Debate Commission, 332 S. Michigan, Suite 500, Chicago, IL 60604
      (please note: checks and money orders should NOT be made out to CDC, but checks and money orders MUST be sent to CDC’s address for collection – do NOT send to Westinghouse or CPS since CDC will confirm student registration payment)
