CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

New Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett is working with a commission handpicked to oversee the proposed plan for the closing of some CPS schools.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the commission is leaning towards only closing 20 schools in any one year.

A source said the revised plan will give parents more time to prepare instead of scrambling to find alternatives.

Mayor Emanuel and Byrd-Bennett have 193 schools on their potential list of closures. These include schools that might not be utilizing resources as well as others.

They have until March 2013 to make a final announcement on which CPS schools will be closing.
