CEO Brizard is recommending Ms. Esaian's immediate termination to the Board. Her blatant and utter disregard for our District's Code of Ethics is unacceptable and we will not tolerate any employee's breach of that code. CPS employees have an obligation to the students, families and taxpayers of this District to hold themselves to the highest ethical standards. We simply cannot, and will not, allow any employee to break the trust that parents and children of this District place in us everyday.
