Tonight: SRC meeting and a candlelight vigil against school closings

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

Superintendent William Hite and his crew have faced the wrath and ire of a community in resistance this week. After those four community forums on the District’s school-closings plan, at tonight’s public meeting, the School Reform Commission will likely have its turn in front of a combative crowd.

On tonight’s slate: presentations on school safety, food services, and the proposed sale of school buildings. You can watch the meeting live below, starting at 5:30 p.m.

At 4 p.m, PCAPS has organized a candlelight vigil to stop the school closings. Beginning at City Hall, protesters will then march to the SRC meeting at 440 N. Broad St.
