According to data from Chicago Public Schools, Field Elementary School, 7019 N. Ashland Ave., is expected to have 95 fewer students than last year, in part due to the grade loss. By 2021, the school is expected to have only 176 students — well below its "ideal" capacity of 690, by CPS standards.

Similarly, Kilmer Elementary, at 6700 N. Greenview Ave., is expected to drop from 702 students this fall to 583 by fall 2021, Moore said.

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, Moore will hold a community meeting on the proposal at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth Ave.
