Walter D. Palmer Charter School Permanently Closes on December 31
Written by WURD Radio on December 31, 2014
It has been a tumultuous several months for Walter D. Palmer Leadership Learning Partners Charter School. Over the last few months WURD has followed this story closely, interviewing Dr. Palmer, representatives from both the charter school and the School District of Philadelphia, and attending community meetings with impacted families.
The school has been beset with financial challenges that forced it to close its high school campus in the fall, and on December 26, families of remaining students received a letter from the school that it would be permanently closing on December 31, as well as a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help them transition to a new school site.
