"Some 200 area homeowners aired their concerns and questions about the proposed relocation of the Ad Prima Charter School from its Frankford campus to 8034 Thouron Ave., directly across the street from the F. S. Edmonds Elementary School, during a more-than-three-hour public meeting. The session was called by the visibly angry Ninth District Councilwoman Cherelle L. Parker. She said she was never contacted by the Philadelphia School District or the charter school about the late May lease signing nor the School Reform Commission’s approval after 'public' meetings at the end of April. Parker said she only learned about this when angry homeowners and Edmonds parents contacted her office asking why they were not aware of the public meetings, open houses or relocation of the charter school to their neighborhood."
My office is hosting an important community meeting next Thursday, June 14th at 7 p.m. at Woodcrest United Church of Christ (8105 Thouron Ave.) to discuss the relocation of Ad Prima Charter School to the former New Media Charter School building at 8034 Thouron Avenue. Please join us to share your feedback.
