Philadelphia Student Union statement on School Closings

The Philadelphia Student Union calls on the SRC and the School District to ensure:

An open budgeting process to make certain that closing schools is a last resort

Transparency in the decision-making process of school closings

Communities, families, and students receive advance notice about school closings

There is no overcrowding as a result of closures, and that if schools are consolidated they become small schools sharing one building.

Neighborhood safety and travel times and cost are strongly considered

At least half of the money from the sale of buildings should benefit students who’ve been displaced if they are displaced to other high needs schools
