Three Northeast meetings part of School District’s facilities plan outreach

The School District of Philadelphia announced at Wednesday School Reform Commission meeting the recommended closure of nine city schools and reconfigurations to 17 others.

None of those closures are meant for Northeast schools, but two are part of the grade reconfigurations outlined in the district’s facilities master plan. Though specific plans for the schools haven’t been made clear, Henry W. Lawton School in Wissinoming and Allen M. Stearne School in Frankford both need reconfigurations, according to the district.

Seventeen community meetings will take place around the city between now and February to discuss the facilities plan, and three of those meetings are in the Northeast. They’re all scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

  • Saturday, Dec. 17: Lincoln High School
  • Tuesday, Jan. 10: Northeast High School
  • Tuesday, Feb. 7: Frankford High School
