Parents and community members are coming together to call on Alderman Mitts to support the expansion of Speer Academy - so that more children from the 37th Ward can access a great public school in their community.
Speer is a Level 1+ school providing a first class STEM education to 800 students. As a result of its high performance and excellent reputation in the community, demand for seats at the school is very high. This school year there were over 2,000 applications for just 150 freshman seats.
This modest expansion would allow 300 more students to attend Speer - and the construction is at no cost to taxpayers. Alderman Mitts has consistently supported Speer in the past - now we need her to continue to stand with parents and families and help 300 more students become the doctors, engineers, and scientists of tomorrow.
Take action to join hundreds of other parents by to urge Alderman Mitts to act now to support the Speer expansion.
