Ten elementary schools without playground access

As part of some other work that's going on around playgrounds throughout the city, I was taking a look at school need and playground access. Here are ten schools that don't have access to playgrounds:
  • Woodland Academy
  • Goddard School
  • Chandler Elementary
  • Belmont Street
  • Grafton Street
  • Canterbury Street
  • Elm Park Community
  • Chandler Magnet
  • Columbus Park
  • Rice Square
All of those are also schools that are above the citywide average rate of poverty (72.7% for WPS), as well. There are only five schools below the city poverty rate that also lack playground access.
Feels like something to work on, doesn't it?
