Inside Colocation

The public school where I've been teaching for the last 8 years has been targeted for a "colocation" with a corporate-model charter school. Most people, including me, don't know what a colocation looks like, though we've heard bleak stories. I've started this blog to document it as best I can.
This is the first sign I have ever seen in our building that restricts student access to certain hallways/stairwells. The charter school has complained that students from other schools sometimes make their way into the basement, where the cafeteria and several bathrooms are also located. They evidently are making the effort to shut down these public halls.
