The School District of Philadelphia is proposing to close 29 schools and relocate five others in the fall. The closure recommendations, most of which are scheduled to be voted on by the School Reform Commission on March 7, reflect revisions to an earlier proposal that would have shuttered 37 schools and relocated seven.
This map shows all the schools, both programs and buildings, that the District intends to close or relocate.
