CPS Schools Closing: 54 to close, 61 buildings to be shuttered
I’m copying this from RYH who has the lowdown on the closing and continues to challenge CPS on some of the tough questions (including — what really constitutes UNDER/OVER utilization.)
CPS has never closed more than 13 schools in one year and the district has a master facilities plan that is due in October yet they are proposing this move without any research or evidence to back it.
Here’s the list:
Interactive map from Sun-Times:
CPS must hold three hearings for each school before the May 22nd Board vote on school closings. The Board will vote on these closings but Board members did not attend any of the community hearings.
We will be on Chicago Tonight this evening talking about the closings at 7pm.
Parents4Teachers will be doing a banner drop around the city tomorrow to oppose the closings. Meet at City Hall at 4pm to participate or email email@example.com.
