CCPA Set To Close After School Board Again Votes 4 to 3 for Cut

Despite the pleas of students and parents, the Springfield school board has closed the door on the Capital College Preparatory Academy for the second time in a month. By the same 4-3 vote, board members upheld last month’s decision to close the school in a cost-cutting move.


Board member Bill Looby had proposed a compromise to allow the college prep program to keep operating as a “school-within-a-school,” instead of as a stand-alone program, but that proposal was also rejected.


Supporters say CCPA has improved test scores and lowered the “achievement gap” in Springfield public schools.
