Transforming Closed Schools into Neighborhood Assets

CM | 1.25

Date: Sunday, April 14

Begins: 2:30PM

Ends: 3:45PM

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.
