Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel is holding a press conference at Kelly High School this morning where he is expected to name Chicago's next schools CEO. WBEZ speculated on Friday that the new chief would be Jean-Claude Brizard, superintendent of schools in the 32,000-student Rochester City School District in Rochester, New York.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle is reporting that Brizard is expected to announce his resignation from Rochester schools today.
