As CPS prepares to close a record number of schools, the fate of students and communities is in question.
Four schools avoid closings list
CPS backpedaled on four schools that were on an unofficial closings list released to community groups the week of Jan. 5. Ross, Curtis and Lavizzo elementary schools were slated for turnaround, but survived the cut and were not on the official list of closed and turnaround schools released Jan. 16. Key Elementary, slated for closure, also survived the cut. For the official list of closed and turnaround schools, go to our blog.
