Revised facilities policies approved

Submitted by Benjamin Herold


Monday night, the School Reform Commission (SRC) unanimously approved new “Adaptive Reuse ” and “Rightsizing ” policies without comment. Taken together, the policies will guide the District’s efforts to close and sell up to 50 school buildings as part of a broad effort to reduce by half its current number of “empty seats,” currently estimated at 70,000.
