School Closings Followup

See the full list of NCLB restructuring schools, the revised press release from CPS explaining what closed means, and a schedule of the school closing hearings in February. 

If you want to see the long list of schools that have failed to make AYP for 5 years or more and are now in "restructuring" (a NCLB not a Ren10 thing) you can check it out here:  Download restructuring_list_051.xls

If you want to see CPS's clarification to the first press release, look here:  Download Press_Release_closings2.doc :  I'm not sure it will help, though.  "This release clarifies that the phase-outs of four schools will be completed by the end of the year, but that new schools have already begun operating at those sites." Right.

Last but not least, if you're looking for some hearings to go to, here's the schedule.  All of them are at CPS on the 5th floor.  Farren, Monday, Feb. 6, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Frazier, Monday, Feb. 6, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sherman, Tuesday, Feb. 7, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Morse, Tuesday, Feb. 7, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. KIPP/CYVA, Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Arai, Saturday, Feb. 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Collins, Thursday, Feb. 9, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Carver, Friday, Feb. 10, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Lindblom/DuSable/Bowen, Saturday, Feb. 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
