    Isn't Wilson very, very likely to be closed? Its hard to keep track of the often changing list I know but it seems a bit unfair if they don't tell prospective parents that.

    The SRC is voting on the proposed closures, of which Wilson is one, tomorrow. When Drew was in the same situation last year, they also proceeded with their March Open House because nothing is final until the SRC has voted. I'm sure in both cases, the schools made prospective parents attending the Open House aware of the situation.

    McMichael was also on this year's closure list but was removed and is being made into a Promise Academy.

    Well it appears Wilson was not spared, but it was my understanding that closure was extremely likely, not so much because of bad academic performance but because it was a relatively small school near a larger underutilized school and unlike many of the closures the School District could sell the building, literally tomorrow if it wanted, to an interested party, the University of Sciences located right next door.

    Any way, thanks for posting the information.

    USP is having financial difficulties and is unlikely to bid on the building. The Wilson community did fight for their school and it would have been incredibly disrespectful to their efforts to note the closure proposal on a list distributed prior to the SRC's vote.

    And you're welcome.
