After Tuesday morning’s student protest and meeting with Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s CEO Eric Gordon, Gordon proposed a new plan Wednesday evening that will keep the Whitney Young Gifted and Talented Academy intact.
The new plan involves attaching a 14-classroom modular to the new K-8 building that is currently under construction next to Whitney Young. It will house all Whitney Young students after it is complete in January
The K-8 building will be home to students from Charles Eliot, who are moving after their building was sold to a charter school.
In the interim, Whitney Young students will use the existing Whitney Young building and Charles Eliot students will move into that building’s annex.
CMSD officials said this gives the students and community the chance to rally, help with recruiting, and show that the gifted and talented standalone school is sustainable.
