The Chicago Principals and Administrators Association said it was “blindsided” by the announcement. “Principals don’t determine the resources and conditions that leave some schools ready to open and others unable to,” it said.

Chicago Principals Say They Were Blindsided by Announcement Some Schools Might Offer In-Person Learning Friday
The former principal of Blaine Elementary School in Lakeview, who is a frequent critic of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPS policies, joins "Chicago Tonight" to discuss his dismissal and the charges against him.
Chicago Public Schools says it will issue budgets for schools on Monday. As reported by Chicago Tonight on Wednesday, many principals throughout CPS are growing increasingly frustrated that they are expected to plan for the new school year and finalize hiring decisions with little idea of how much money they will have to spend. It now appears principals will soon get some clarity.
