McKinley Park Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) Community Meeting:

McKinley Park Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) Community Meeting:
Tuesday, December 10
SEIU
2229 S. Halsted
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

 The McKinley Park NAC has been meeting once or twice a week since October 16 to review a charter school proposal for our area. This proposed charter, Be The Change, may locate in West Bridgeport and will be recruiting students from Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Pilsen and Bronzeville. One of the NAC's responsibilities is to give a recommendation to CPS as to whether CPS should approve this charter or not. Another responsibility of the NAC is to host a community meeting so they can share the process they followed, introduce the charter Design Team, share the NAC's findings on the proposal, and hear from the community. Charter proposals are supposed to be made public on the Office of New Schools (a part of CPS) website on Thursday, December 5. Please plan on attending this meeting on December 10 and please share this information with others in Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Pilsen, and Bronzeville as well as Canaryville and Chinatown. If you are interested, here is a link to the 2013 CPS Request for Proposals for New Schools which will give you an idea of where this NAC came from: http://www.cps.edu/newschools/documents/rfp_fornewschools.pdf
