Save Ace Technical Charter High School

ACE Tech is outperforming three closest community schools, so why is CPS threatening to shut this school down?

Ace Technical Charter High School located at 5410 S. State Street, Chicago, IL 60609 is the only charter in Chicago charged with preparing students for lucrative careers in the trades. Architecture, Construction and Engineering.

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    CPS appointed board of directors is planning to close ACE Tech, because the school has been effective in preparing African American youth to become gainfully employed in Chicago's construction trades and racist construction trades unions....Where blacks in represent only 1.2 % of securing construction trade contracts in Chicago!

Alley light not fixed as of June 2017 despite calling 311 3x and requesting service on-line 2x

I pay hefty Chicago/Cook County taxes and every year they increase-and yet, I can't get the city to fix the alley light. Twice I have seen it reported on-line with the status "closed". When I call 311 to complain they don't want to hear anything other than the address and click-they disconnect. Is this the norm? Does it usually take this long? Let's face it, our neighborhood is no longer safe and a dark alley is asking for trouble.

  • I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I...

    I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I like to help whenever I can. I have lived in Chicago 35 years and have seen the good and bad. Our city is not perfect but with a little push to our reps, we have to help ourselves to get things done.

    Dude really!? My complaint on this forum was based on the fact I went through the proper channels several times and nothing was done. I asked for suggestions. The fact that your butthurt because I didn’t give you my address, doesn’t give you a right to negate or even question my use of this forum. Get over yourself-YOU are not employed by the City of Chicago nor do you represent the City of Chicago. No one has to answer to you in order to add credibility to their concerns. Initially, what I thought was a nice gesture on your part, now has me wondering. No thanks-after your BS comment, stay clear of the area I live in.

Archer ave & Francisco Safety Island

What alderman, city planner, or person was responsible for the safety Island installed at the intersection of Archer ave & Francisco?. This will impede the flow of the traffic on Archer and will create a real nice mess of traffic and air pollution during rush hour and winter driving. Why weren't residents notified of this? Was a permit issued for this waste of taxpayers money?

    Who are they? Still want it out cause they did not advertise this well enough!

    Is That Turkey Hazardous to Your Health?
    Have you ever wondered how long food really lasts after preparation? How about that turkey dinner? Do the mashed potatoes, a hearty root vegetable, last longer than cranberries? As American's work weeks increase, currently 47 hours a week, prepared food has become the new national dinner.
