This email was sent to parents of CPS Students from CPS CEO Jean Claude Brizard, please see below and dial in and let your voice be heard!!
Dear CPS Parents/Guardians:
First, if you are among the hundreds of parents that joined our last two parent tele-town halls, thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed taking your questions and engaging with you on issues facing our students and the district. I want to keep the conversation going as we head into the holidays, and would like to invite you back to our final tele-town hall of 2011.
Please join me this Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 6:30 p.m., for another hour-long discussion about the series of actions CPS has proposed to create higher performing school options for children currently attending some of the lowest performing schools in the district. So much has been reported on the actions we are taking to turn them around and our plans to help students at these schools get a fresh start at achieving academic success in the classroom.I hope to engage with you again on these issues so you can hear directly from me on what we are doing to change the status quo and why.
To access the call on Wednesday, please call 1-877-229-8493 toll-free from any phone, and, when prompted, enter the access code 18528. I again look forward to answering your questions, and hope you will join me and other members of my team this Wednesday. Thanks again!
Chicago Public Schools, CEO
