The Chicago Public School system is getting set to release a preliminary list of schools targeted for closing.

The list is expected to come out this week just as another round of community meetings on school closings begins.

So far, the district has put out a list of 330 schools it says are under-enrolled.

But a final list of closings, due out next month, could top 100 based on criteria spelled out by CPS CEO Barbara Byrd Bennett.

The district faces a $1 billion deficit next year.
