Another hearing will be held Tuesday night for parents who want to learn more about Chicago Public Schools' list of possible school closings.

Once again, parents were heard at a public hearing Monday night. School officials met with outraged parents, teachers and residents from the Englewood and Gresham neighborhoods.

Last week, the school board released a list of 129 schools that are being considered for closing. It is expected the final closing list will be much smaller.

Tuesday's meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at St. Anselm Church at 6045 S. Michigan.
