The Pittsburgh Public School board voted last night to close Schenley High School. It also rejected a voter referendum that would have put the issue on the November ballot. Superintendent Mark Roosevelt says this decision will allow the administration to focus on the district's future. Next year, most Schenley students will attend classes at the Reizenstein building. The school board also last night created a citizen advisory committee that will explore future options for the Schenley building.
