Ogden, Jenner Elementary Schools Prepare to Merge as School Year Ends

Even though Tuesday marks the end of the school year for students at Chicago Public Schools, plenty of teachers and staff are making plans for the next school year.

One in particular has been two years in the making.

We take a look at what the two school communities are doing at the end of this year to make the transition in the fall.
