CHICAGO — The Archdiocese of Chicago has extended the deadline for the schools offered the opportunity to participate in the regional school merger on the Northwest Side.
The Archdiocese has given the six schools until Feb. 20 to make a decision on whether to participate on the school merger, said Michelle Adamowski, an archdiocesan spokeswoman.
In January, the Archdiocese invited six Northwest side elementary and junior high schools to participate in the consolidation. Each school was given until Feb. 13 to make a decision on whether they would participate in the merger, which is set to take place for the 2016-2017 school year.
The schools invited to be part of the merger is: St. Constance, 5841 W. Strong St.; St. Cornelius, 5252 N. Long Ave.; Our Lady of Victory, 4434 N. Laramie Ave.; St. Pascal, 6143 W. Irving Park Road; St. Tarcissus, 6040 W. Ardmore Ave.; and St. Thecla, 6323 N. Newcastle Ave.
Adamowski did not say why the deadline was extended.
