Which schools are closing now? A quick look at the District's revised plan

a

Ten schools that the Philadelphia School District had recommended for closure will now remain open if the new closings plan is approved by the School Reform Commission next month. Two new schools have appeared on the closings list. Two others, previously headed for relocation, will now keep both their buildings and their programs. In all, eight fewer schools (and buildings) are slated to close - 29 instead of 37.

Keeping track of all the reshuffling could make your head spin. So we've compiled a chart of the schools and buildings now on the District's newly revised list of recommended closures and relocations.

The District has also released a summary of the changes made to schools affected by the new plan.
