Six charter schools in Chicago have been placed on a warning list because they are performing poorly, according to CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett.

The schools include: , CICS-Basil, Galapagos Charter Campus, Ace Tech Charter High School, Aspira Charter High School Early College, Catalyst Charter-Howland and North Lawndale Charter High School-Collins.

If any of these schools do not demonstrate improvement by September 2013 when the data reporting for the school years is completed, that school will be required to develop and execute a remediation plan," Byrd-Bennett said.

A group opposed to possible school closings on Chicago's West Side held a rally before Wednesday's board meeting.
