CPS worker ethics probed

District food vendor allegedly gave gifts worth thousands of dollars to high-ranking employee

The inspector general for Chicago Public Schools is investigating allegations that the district’s largest food vendor gave thousands of dollars in gifts to a high-ranking CPS employee, a possible violation of the district’s ethics policy.

The investigation was triggered by an anonymous email sent to the Tribune last year. The email detailed allegations against Chartwells-Thompson Hospitality, which signed a new $53.2 million food services contract with CPS in May. In the course of reporting the story, the Tribune contacted CPS Inspector General James Sullivan, who launched an independent investigation.
