Edison High School in Hunting Park will host a community meeting Tuesday night for parents and school officials to discuss the Philadelphia school closures.

The meeting will start at 6:00 p.m. in the 100 block of West Luzerne Street.

Philadelphia School District Superintendent Hite says the purpose of the meeting is to explain the criteria that the district used to make the recommendations to the School Reform Commission and to get feedback from the community.

Last night, parents and officials met at Sayre High School in West Philadelphia.

There will be several more community meetings as the school district addresses the concerns of the parents and students.
