The Coalition to Revitalize Dyett High School developed a neighborhood high school plan over two years with input from the Chicago Teachers Union, Chicago Botanic Garden, Teachers for Social Justice and many others. Their vision is to teach high schoolers about global leadership and green technology; the group has been begging CPS to let them reopen the school in September 2015. | File Photo
CPS on Friday issued a formal request for proposals for the Dyett High School building, seeking an “innovative program which engages its students and also meets the needs of the local community." But many in the community already have a plan and are angry that they've been spurned.
