Transforming Closed Schools into Neighborhood Assets
CM | 1.25
Date: Sunday, April 14
Activity Code: S488
Room: Grand Ballroom B
School closings may effectively address a district’s bottom line, but they greatly impact the neighborhoods where the vacant schools exist—especially when those communities have been plagued by decades of disinvestment. Explore how school districts in Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Kansas City have identified comprehensive reuse strategies for closed schools and developed tools to engage discussion about transforming the sites into community assets.
