Ren-10 Lists Almost Out (Chicago IL)

It's not going to be easy. Board officials have been meeting furiously for the past month and more to see if they could put together slates of new schools and to-be-closed schools ahead of the late-January board meeting, and now it looks like Tuesday is the day. Send me the lists if you have them:

In the meantime, CPS is still trying to work out a way to keep its NCLB tutoring operation running at least through the rest of the school year. A meeting later this month will determine what happens.
