ACLU of Oklahoma files open records request following OKCPS proposed school consolidations

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma has filed an open records request into a proposed round of school consolidations in Oklahoma City.

On Monday, Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Aurora Lora presented a plan to consolidate five schools as the school looks for cost-saving measures. The following schools were in the proposal:
Edgemere Elementary
FD Moon Academy
Gatewood Elementary
Green Pastures Elementary
Johnson Elementary

ACLU Oklahoma Legal Director Brady Henderson says the closures appear to impact schools in neighborhoods "predominantly of color" and those that are major centers for students with disabilities and special needs.
