Gang Recruitment @ Kelvyn Park HS

Community rumors have been heard that gang recruitment at Kelvyn Park Chicago Park District, just across the way from KPHS have become more intense in recent weeks. Concerns have been heard that gang members at the park, or otherwise in that general area have been making stronger efforts to recruit KPHS students, and that there is at least some possibility that gang members inside the school are working with gang members outside of the school.

We can only hope that the school is working with CPD and Alderman Ray Suarez to tackle this problem.
