Officials hope that by separating students from Altgeld Gardens and students from communities closer to Fenger, violence of the type that killed 16-year-old Derrion Albert a few weeks ago may be eliminated. Chicago Public Schools officials announced a similar plan last week, but said interested students would still have to meet the test-score, attendance, grade, and interview requirements for Carver. Scott said CPS will make a final decision on how to proceed once they figure out how many students from Altgeld Gardens attend Fenger, including those who haven’t been going to school out of fear.
