Parents and community members occupy Saucedo in protest of co-location.

The CPS board announced last month that they would be moving Spry Community High School from its present rented location into the Little Village facilities currently occupied by Saucedo Academy and Telphochcalli Elementary School.

There is no room for the three schools in the same location.

Nobody in the three schools were consulted in CPS the board decision.

Last night parents and community members occupied the Saucedo auditorium following a meeting with CPS.

Police were called.

12th Ward Alderman George Cardenas, normally a toady of the Mayor, was not present at the meeting, but sent a letter calling on the board to delay a decision on the matter.

Late in the evening, the occupiers left the building and will be holding a press conference at 8:30 this morning.
