New School In Dunning OK'd By CPS Board; Ebinger, Prussing To Get Annexes

Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41st) personally thanked the board for its vote to build on Ebinger Wednesday, but he vowed to "keep the quest going" to get a similar addition for Dirksen Elementary School, 8601 W. Foster Ave., now operating around 160 percent capacity.

The school is slated to open at the intersection of Irving Park Road and Oak Park Avenue in time for the 2019-20 school year.

Taft principal Mark Grishaber has lobbied hard in support of the alderman's proposal for a "Taft South," arguing that it could be the only way to relieve the school's overcrowding without stripping the resources that have helped Taft, 6530 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., climb to level 1 status.

At the same time, students and teachers at Steinmetz College Prep High School, 3030 N. Mobile Ave., have questioned why the $75 million school is being built at all, when the neighboring Steinmetz is hemorrhaging enrollment and enduring bone-deep budget cuts.

Also on Wednesday, the board passed a resolution calling for the commission to start designing annexes for Prussing Elementary School, 4650 N. Menard Ave., and Ebinger Elementary School, 7350 W. Pratt Ave., both announced earlier this year.

Ace Hardware

Did anyone hear about a robbery at ace hardware on harlem and foster tonight right before closing?

  • No, didn't realize there was a robbery there. Hope no one was hurt.

  • Yes, this is true. It was a knife point. Nobody was hurt and I heard the guys that work there chased him but not sure if the person got away.

  • To bad a good guy with a conceal carry wasn't there.
