Watch: 81 speakers signed up to speak at tonight's SRC meeting





The School Reform Commission will be holding its first action meeting of the new year tonight. The SRC will be voting on adopting a strategic plan for career and technical education and the proposed nonrenewal of Community Academy's charter. Community, one of the city's first charter schools, has been a consistent poor performer, failing to make yearly progress benchmarks the last six years. The school has essentially been operating without a charter since June 2011.  

With the regional meetings on school closings occuring at a steady pace this month -- two every week -- the heated topic of closings will likely surface during the public-comments portion of the meeting. There are 81 people signed up to speak tonight. The Inquirer's Kristen Graham warned attendees to "bring your pajamas." 

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. Watch it live above.
