Tonight at Roosevelt High School (6pm) and Saturday morning at Vashon High School, there are forums for the public to comment on recent plans to close over 2 dozen schools within St Louis City.
SLPS info on forums
SLPS school management facilities report (on SLPS website)
The school where I taught for four years on the North side was closed in August. Several other schools where I currently work with kids are on this list. I'm headed to the meeting tonight. If you want to understand the choices being made, and if you have a vested interest in our community being educated, this is a good place to start.
