Labor Day Statement from CPS CEO Jean-Claude Brizard 

September 3, 2012

We honor the working men and women of our District not just today, but every day for the great work they do on behalf of our students. We hope to soon reach a fair agreement that recognizes them for their hard work and allows us to avoid any disruptions to our kids' school year just as they and their teachers are benefiting from the new Full School Day. We're excited about the start of school tomorrow and look forward to having a successful and meaningful year for our students and every school community.
