    On January 8th, CTU submitted a proposal to CPS. Then principals and APs across the district sprang into action to ensure their voices were heard on that proposal. They started meeting to craft a response and then brought CPAA in to get broader member input. That led to the creation of the document below.

    Then, the following sequence of events occurred.

    • Today, at 1:00 PM, I sent CEO Martinez and Jesse Sharkey of CTU the recommendations developed and approved with input from more than four hundred principals and assistant principals. I later called Mayor Lightfoot. We spoke briefly and I emailed her the recommendations. Those recommendations were in response to CTU's January 8th proposal. The district did not respond directly to CPAA. Sharkey did respond and said their negotiating team was seriously considering the recommendations.
    • At 2:00 PM, I started getting phone calls from the press. They didn't have our proposal but had gotten word of its existence. 
    • Then, at 4:00 PM, after two days with no proposal, CPS finally submitted a counterproposal to CTU, and their House of Delegates approved the proposal. A lead CTU organizer told me that the district's tone and urgency seemed to change after we submitted our recommendations.

    They will never give you credit for it, but I have no doubt that CPS would not have submitted that counterproposal to CTU if it were not for their concern about your voice getting heard through the attention that proposal would have gotten. One thing is for sure: they heard you, and they acted.

    Principals don’t determine the resources and conditions that leave some schools ready to open and others unable to. The differences in resources and conditions are the results of past and present inequitable decisions made by city and school district officials. Principals do not want the demoralizing task of telling one school community why it cannot open while others can. In fact, when nearly 50 of the principals and assistant principals in Network 2 met today, 97% of them voted to request CEO Martinez retract his statement because it does not reflect what an overwhelming majority of principals and assistant principals want. Instead of forcing principals to communicate inequitable messages to communities, it is time for the mayor, school board, and district management to tell those same communities how they’re going to end that inequity.

    In response to a survey sent to principals and assistant principals this Monday, 75% of administrators agreed that the district should go remote for one or two weeks and use this remote time to ensure the districtwide return to in-person learning is safe. However, scores of principals were concerned about a part of the question that implied individual principals should have the ability to open their schools for in-person learning on a case-by-case basis. This concern has come front and center in a letter penned with the input of more than one hundred principals and assistant principals. Their letter is below.
