CPS closings could be fewer than expected

As few as 15 schools could be closed if Chicago Public Schools officials take the advice of a bipartisan commission.

Commissioners say shutting down a large number of schools would create too many problems for students and families.

CPS is considering closing as many as 120 schools due to budget concerns and declining enrollment.

The commission’s final report is due in March and is not binding.

The CPS board has a scheduled meeting Wednesday, but is not expected to discuss closings.

The board has until the end of March to produce a list of schools to be shut down.
