Byrd-Bennett: Canter to Close

Staff Writer

Canter Middle School is one of 54 schools on the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) closing list, according to Hyde Park local school council members who were briefed this afternoon. Kozminski and Reavis elementary schools have been removed from the list.

CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett has said that the schools on this year’s list are being recommended for closing, in most part, due to underutilization. Students from Canter, 4959 S. Blackstone Ave., which is a 6th through 7th grade school, will be moved to Bret Harte and Ray elementary schools. Reavis will not receive students from any of the city’s closing schools.
