Reprieve for Ames School

This has already been reported elsewhere, but it bears repeating here.  The future of Old North’s Ames Visual & Performing Arts Magnet School appears to be safe, as long as St. Louis Public Schools Special Administrative Board goes along with the recommendations of Superintendent Kelvin Adams.  Adams released his proposed school closing list last week and his list did not include Ames, which would have been on the chopping block had he gone along with the recommendations of the consultants from MGT of America.  The Special Administrative Board will vote on the Superintendent’s recommendations at their meeting on March 12.
