Third phase of CPS community meetings to begin Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett announced Wednesday that the third phase of community engagement around the district's utilization crisis will begin Saturday, focusing on the recommendation to consolidate underutilized and under-resourced schools.

CPS will hold two community meetings for each school, providing parents and community members the ability to ask questions, provide feedback to the district, and receive more information.

Each school proposed for closure or co-location will have two community meetings that will take place from April 6 through April 15, and a public hearing for each proposed closure and co-location will be held from April 16 to May 2.

The meetings will be held for two or three hours on Saturday mornings and afternoons, as well as in the evenings during the week.

Chicago Public Schools has 403,000 students in 681 schools. It's the nation's third-largest school district.
