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.
