Amends the School Code. Provides that a Chicago school is eligible for closure only if closure is necessary to best serve the school-age children of that community and the Chicago Board of Education (i) adopts and relies upon measurable criteria for closings developed in conjunction with local school councils throughout the school district; (ii) applies the criteria consistently throughout the district; and (iii) fully and timely discloses to stakeholders and the public all information relevant to the criteria. Sets forth provisions concerning public hearings and voting procedures, alternative school enrollment, transitional services, and an annual report.
