From a reader: "There are hearings happening to discuss changing the boundaries of Haugan
Middle School and Marshall Middle School. Haugan is just a few blocks from
the new Edison Gifted location. Haugan is rumored to have low
attendance and also rumored that it may NOT be a charter school anymore. If you
recall Haugan looks exactly like the new Edison.

"There is an uproar that
APMC is going to be phased out and Edison doubled. Not this fall but the
following fall. This year APMC actually has increased enrollment of about
40 kids for fall or 2009. The claim is that enrollment for the middle schools is
now increasing, Marshall and Haugan are NOT at capacity. People are
flipping because the boundaries may change. In changing the boundaries rival
gangs will be combined under on school. Haugan has gang issues as well.
"Keep in mind this school is blocks from APMC and I find it interesting there has
not been much discussion about that in the past. Haugan's boundaries will
go further north including the AMPC attendance area. I do not know how
much of this is true and how much rumor. But someone may want to attend the
meeting and find out.
The reader also says that Irving Park MS is being completely gutted in preparation for the takeover of Disney 2. "To think the Edison parents
snubbed this school when they had a chance to move to it because it
was old, because CPS is now gutting it."
Anyone know more about this, or different?
