CPS held the first round of community meetings this week on their proposed school actions. We attended and live tweeted the following meetings: NTA, Hirsch HS colocation with a religious charter school, Ogden-Jenner merger (which was the one proposal guided and informed by the community), and Englewood HS closings (CPS plans to close the 4 neighborhood high schools in Englewood leaving a one year gap before the new high school is built which will start with only incoming freshman.)
We also created a Storify of some tweets from the two nights of community meetings. You can read our tweets from the meetings by scrolling through our Twitter page or by using these shortcuts:
NTA meeting coverage starts with this tweet; search #wearenta.
Ogden-Jenner meeting coverage is in this thread; search #OgdenJenner.
Hirsch HS colocation meeting coverage is in this thread; search #HirschHuskyPride was used. (We’ve also submitted concerns about the charter school and spoke at the unelected BOE.)

RYH spoke at the NTA, Hirsch HS, and Englewood meetings. Below are two of those statements.
