Board of education tentatively moves forward on school closings

Foreshadowing a vote next month to close 54 Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Board of Education adopted a resolution Wednesday that will add $363.7 million to the CPS annual capital budget. Of that, approximately $217 million is allocated to cover costs directly related to school closings, including the costs of repairs to buildings that would take in students from schools slated to close.

Despite a 6-0 vote approving the supplemental budget, a few board members voiced concern about the closings.
