Immediate impact of School District’s facilities master plan

    We’ve heard the School District of Philadelphia won’t close any schools this fall. We’ve heard the district will sell off some of its existing unused buildings, consolidate some schools and reconfigure grades.

    But what are the immediate actionable steps of the facilities master plan?

    Read NewsWorks partner the Public School Notebook‘s account of yesterday’s School Reform Commission meeting, which lists the immediate impact the facilities plan will have.

    Some of the schools affected by the reassignments include West Philadelphia’s Lamberton High School and Elementary School, and Morrell Park’s John Hancock School and LaBrum Middle School.
