Chicago Public Schools is holding community meetings all this week to answer questions about lead found in the water at a number of the city’s schools.

So far, 27 of the 93 schools where tests show lead above the federal EPA’s standards. District officials will host two community meetings tonight at Michelle Clark High School at 4 p.m. and Walter Payton High School at 6 P.M. A couple dozen people showed up at the first of seven community meetings. WBEZ’s Becky Vevea was there.
