Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman extends his congratulations to CPS school social worker Dan Coyne today as he is honored and admired by many for giving the gift of life.
“Dan Coyne is a hero in eyes and hearts of everyone who knows about his story and his selfless act of kindness. He serves as a role model for the entire Chicago Public Schools community and beyond.”
The collective actions taken to ensure policy compliance were implemented at the district level – they did not take into account Mr. Coyne’s individual character and personal circumstances.
Mr. Huberman plans to personally review this matter, and is freezing any actions regarding Mr. Coyne until that review is complete.
Chicago Public Schools serves 417,855 students in 675 schools. It is the nation’s third-largest school district.
