Community Education Councils give parents a powerful voice in shaping the policies and priorities of New York City Schools. We advise the Chancellor on a range of matters, work directly with the district superintendents, review district educational programs and make recommendations on capital improvements in order to make our public schools the best they can be.

Please join CEC15 for our monthly calendar meeting which is open to the public. Given community and CEC feedback, the DOE announced on Oct. 22 that it has decided not to submit a proposal for rezoning sub-zone 3 for 2020-2021 implementation in order to provide more time to hear from as many voices as possible, and to further empower communities. Therefore, instead of submitting a proposal for a vote by the CEC for implementation beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, the DOE will work with our communities on PAR and other engagement opportunities with the goal of a Spring 2020 vote for 2021-2022 implementation. The DOE is also planning a similar process for potential rezoning in Sunset Park (sub-zone 1) aligned to new schools and buildings opening over the next few years.

Por favor, únase a CEC15 para nuestra reunión de calendario la cual está abierta al público. Dada la retroalimentación de la comunidad y el CEC, el Departamento de Educación anunció el 22 de octubre que decidió no presentar una propuesta para la rezonificación de la subzona 3 para la implementación en 2020-2021 con el fin de proporcionar más tiempo para escuchar a tantas voces como sea posible, y para empoderar aún más a las comunidades. Por lo tanto, en lugar de presentar una propuesta para votación por parte del CEC para su implementación a partir del año escolar 2020-2021, el Departamento de Educación trabajará con nuestras comunidades en PAR y otras oportunidades de participación con el objetivo de una votación en la primavera 2020 para la implementación en 2021-2022 . El Departamento de Educación también está planeando un proceso similar para la rezonificación potencial en Sunset Park (subzona 1) alineado con las nuevas escuelas y edificios que se abrirán en los próximos años.

Over the last 6 months, D15 school community members and representatives from the Department of Education (DOE) have been discussing potential rezoning and admission changes for 7 of our elementary schools: PS 15, PS 29, PS 32, PS 38, PS 58, PS 261 and PS 676. This conversation was prompted by a newly constructed addition to PS 32, which will open in September of 2020-2021 with 436 seats.
The NYCDOE is working closely with the school communities in the area to develop a potential rezoning plan that ensures the additional seats advance Equity and Excellence. Presentations can be found on the DOE website under the District Planning - Brooklyn - District 15 page. The presentation from June 20, 2019 can be downloaded here. In this document you will see the two different approaches that the DOE is proposing which would alleviate overcrowding and create opportunities to diversify.
Both approaches include changes to zone lines and admissions priorities for Students in Temporary Housing, Multilingual Learners and students who are income-eligible for Free and Reduced-Price Lunch. Further details about the two proposed approaches, including a more detailed map of Approach, can be found here. A District 15 Zoning FAQ can be found here.

At the October 22 calendar meeting, Superintendent Skop and the Office of District Planning announced the decision not to submit a proposal for 2020-2021 implementation in order to provide more time to hear from as many voices as possible, and to further empower communities. Instead of submitting a proposal for a vote by the CEC for implementation beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, they will work with our communities on PAR and other engagement opportunities with the goal of a Spring 2020 vote for 2021-2022 implementation. The DOE is also planning a similar process for potential rezoning in Sunset Park aligned to new schools and buildings opening over the next few years.
In the coming weeks, the DOE will begin months-long engagement with the CEC and other community stakeholders about the process, and expects to provide further details at the November 19 CEC meeting.
CEC15 continued the celebration of D15 schools' accomplishments during our Calendar/Business meeting on June 12 at P.S. 38.
