Please join CEC15 for our monthly calendar meeting which is open to the public. Superintendent Skop will share information about District 15 and the Chancellor's new initiatives. The Department of Education's Office of District Planning will provide an update on the community feedback received to date on the potential Rezoning and Admission Changes in seven of our D15 Elementary Schools. This zoning proposal would impact incoming students only. Students currently enrolled in any of these seven schools would not be impacted.
In addition, the DOE, Superintendent Skop, and CEC15 are still seeking feedback on the zoning proposal. Please send your comments to BrooklynZoning@schools.nyc.gov, ASkop@schools.nyc.gov, CEC15@schools.nyc.gov.

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.
At the Sept. 24 calendar meeting, Superintendent Skop and the Office of District Planning continued to engage and solicit feedback from community members and the CECD15 on both approaches before they finalize a more detailed proposal. Also at this meeting, the DOE shared answers to frequently asked questions, feedback that has been received, information on process/timeline, and further details about the two proposed approaches, including a more detailed map of Approach 1. That presentation can be found here. A District 15 Zoning FAQ can be found here.
