Revised Philly school-closings list spares 10, adds 2
February 19, 2013By Shannon McDonald
Philadelphia schools Superintendent William Hite released this morning a revised list of recommended public school closures that would spare 10 from the chopping block.
AMY at James Martin, Cooke, Duckrey, Gompers, Lankenau, McCloskey, Meade, Morris, Overbrook Elementary and Strawberry Mansion High have been removed from the recommended closures list. But M.H. Stanton in North Philadelphia and Beeber Middle School in West Philadelphia have both been added.
The new list, which now calls for 29 closures, has not yet been adopted. School Reform Commission votes are scheduled for next month.
