Four other low-performing schools will get extra resources for 'internal' turnaround.
The District's plan to overhaul 11 struggling schools drew complaints. The SRC also approved an expansion for FACTS Charter School.
Eleven schools are targeted for intervention, which may include mergers or staff overhauls. Community meetings at each school to work on plans will start next week. In a related development, the Philadelphia School Partnership awarded a $1.1 million grant to Roxborough High.
Principals at two of the four schools will remain in their roles.
Fox Chase, Hancock, and Penrose will undergo internal school-led transformations.
