CHICAGO —Two Chicago Public School teachers who feared they could be fired Wednesday for protesting have learned that they will keep their jobs.

Social Studies teacher Lauren Bianchi and Biology teacher Chuch Stark received an email Tuesday that stated their jobs could be in jeopardy.

The Chicago Board of Education was expected to discuss the fate of two George Washington High School instructors at the monthly board meeting Wednesday.

The teachers participated in protests against the construction of a scrap shredder on the city’s Southeast Side.

CPS said an investigation uncovered several significant policy violations by the teachers, including safety policies concerning the transportation of students.

Board members decided against terminating the two CPS teachers as both were given a warning and will need to attend training.
