CPS wants to close 54 schools and shutter 61 buildings

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:

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 info@parents4teachers.net.
