SchoolCuts.org

This website was created to share information about the 129 Chicago Public Schools that were under consideration for closing in Spring 2013. The website was later expanded to include all proposed school actions (closings, consolidations, turnarounds, receiving). For each school, there is demographic information about the student body, measures of school quality, stability, and capacity. Information about other schools in the area is also shown, to help families plan and to provide neighborhood context.
