New charter school for at risk youths

I recently learned that Emmanuel Christian Church has entered into an agreement w/ CPS to open an alternative high school at 83 rd & Damen. No community engagement efforts just trying to slip in without notice. Smh!

  • You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it...

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

Chicago

Anyone know what's going on with the helicopters flying around the neighborhood every other night? Kinda creepy can't trust the government.

  • Beverly Childs Homeowner with railroad horn being a problem @ 3am

    It could be the Chicago Police Department Helicopter Unit flying around looking for possible offenders. The Police Department is considered City Government.

  • Might be a response to the huge wave of gun violence in the South and West sides over the holiday weekend. Though I've seen an increased police presence in the neighborhood recently, period. Even had a team of cops show up at my door with a photo of someone they were looking for, asking me if I'd seen him and asking questions about my neighbors.

Englewood Principal Chosen for Community Service Honor

It was my pleasure to spend 15 years of my career working under the supervision of Dr. Patrica McCann who is the principal of Benjamin E. Mays Academy. This is an award well deserved.
