At the beginning of this school year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Chicago Public Schools Interim Chief Executive Officer José Torres & Interim Chief Education Officer Maurice Swinney, and other district officials joined us at Ombudsman Chicago South as Mayor Lightfoot conducted her press conference for the first day of school. At the press conference, Mayor Lightfoot answered questions and spoke about her goals for the upcoming 2021-22 school year. Our Ombudsman Chicago South teachers, staff, and student ambassadors were excited to host district officials for this press conference.
