MPS board approves plan to house charter high school at Pulaski

October 30, 2015

The Milwaukee School Board on Thursday narrowly approved a plan to house a struggling public high school and a higher-performing performing charter school under one roof, a vote some had seen as a bellwether for MPS Superintendent Darienne Driver’s reform agenda.

The board voted 5-4 to approve the program and lease terms that would allow MPS-chartered Carmen High School of Science & Technology to move into the Pulaski High School campus at 2500 W. Oklahoma Ave.

Supporters, primarily families and staff from Carmen, erupted into applause as Board President Michael Bonds cast the final vote. Pulaski Principal Lolita Patrick and Carmen Head of School Patricia Hoben both lauded the decision.
