The School Reform Commission delayed a vote that would have matched West Philadelphia High School with Johns Hopkins/Diplomas Now for turnaround as a Renaissance School, even though there was a resolution prepared to do this.

SRC chairman Robert Archie said that new information has come to light that needed to be considered before the final vote. He did not elaborate.

West's School Advisory Council voted Monday night to choose its turnaround provider. Johns Hopkins/Diplomas Now was the choice of the 15-member committee, which is made up of 8 parents and 7 community members.

Reporter Benjamin Herold compiled a timeline of the Renaissance Schools process at West since January.

UPDATE: Details on the delay.
