Call for action against CPS school closings

Parents, students and teachers are uniting in a call for action to save dozens of neighborhood schools from closing.

Nearly 200 schools are on the Chicago Public School list to possibly be closed.

Volunteers gathered at seven schools around the city to create a strategy showing their commitment to keeping them open.

High schools, Level 1 elementary schools and some other schools that are still growing are expected to be safe.

CPS says it will release its official list of schools that need defending next month.
