School facilities and closings landing page

This page is the place to keep up with the facilities master planning process. The School District is compiling a comprehensive facilities master plan designed to “right-size” its physical plant. The goal is to maximize educational availability, quality, and equity, which will involve closing, consolidating, and selling schools. Decisions on how to manage this process call for wide community dialogue and close collaboration between the School District and city government. The Notebook is partnering with PlanPhilly to cover this process and inform and help foster that dialogue. This coverage is supported by a grant from the William Penn Foundation.
