Public weighs in on proposed Phila. school closings

PHILADELPHIA - November 19, 2011

Roxborough High School hosted a hearing Saturday morning to allow the public to weigh in on the closing of several public schools.

Roxborough High is not one of the 9 schools on the district's list of what is being called "Facilities Master Plan."

An independent consultant came up with the recommendations, as the district grapples with too many empty seats, aging buildings, and debt.

A vote on the plan is possible by spring, after a series of more public hearings.
