This Thursday, May 15 and Friday, May 16 are "Call the Mayor" days. If you care about the Chicago Public Schools, and the children being dispossessed by a rash of school closings without parental input or adequate planning, please let Daley know your opinion by calling (312.744.3300), faxing (312.744.2324), or emailing (mayordaley@cityofchicago.org) your concern.

Information on the CPS closings is available in the following documents (MS Word .doc format):

- Letter to Daley detailing reasons why schools should not be closed without additional input and planning

- Call the Mayor flier

- Call the Mayor flier in Spanish
