The district in December said 330 schools are underutilized, the chief consideration for closing, so the list released Wednesday offers a far better picture of what schools are still on the block.
Most of the targeted schools are on the South, West and Southwest Sides, many in impoverished neighborhoods that saw significant population loss over the last decade.
CPS last month removed high schools and high performing schools from consideration. On Wednesday, the district told schools with student populations over 600 or utilization rates of at least 70 percent that they also were safe.
We are going to take these 129 and continue to sift through these schools, said CPS schools chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett.
Over the next month, CPS will look at schools on the preliminary list in an effort to determine what led to the declines in enrollment, and whether the schools have academic plans in place to drive improvement.
Safety issues connected with moving students to different neighborhoods will also be considered. CPS is working with the Chicago Police Department and using its own data to determine if closing specific schools could jeopardize the safety of students.

One thing about Obama’s people, they do like their Abortions...
But this record is not near as bad as San Francisco with virtually NO middle schools.
Homosexuals don’t make kids at all.
The evil ones in our society are killing themselves off. Kinda like God’s version of the Darwin Theroy.
Can we just shut down Chicago?
