      Brooklyn, NY

Last fall we cheered the news that the Department of Education (DOE) Division of Portfolio Planning had approved The Children’s School's proposal to expand through eighth grade. However, due to a lack of space in District 15 the expansion is now in jeopardy and we desperately need your help!!!

Please take a few seconds to sign this petition urging our local officials to throw their support behind The Children's School's proposed expansion. We will be sending the petition to Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, Council Member Brad Lander, Assemblywoman Joan Millman, Assemblymember James Brennan, Council Member Stephen Levin, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, and CEC 15 President Jim Devor.

The Children's School has been recognized as one of the very best public elementary schools in the city with a solid record of providing ALL children the education they need to succeed.

We need to get the signed petitions to our legislators before the school year ends so please help us make the Children's School expansion a reality -- sign now!!

Thank you!

    1. NYC DOE Has Proposed a LOCATION

      Nicole Krieger
      Petition Organizer

      We are making great progress. The NYC DOE has proposed a location for the school. However, there will be "environmental impact hearings" as well as the final hearing at the Panel for Education Policy (PEP) Meeting where final decisions will be made.

      Therefore, we still need your support! Sign the petition and consider attending one of the hearings and speaking on behalf of the expansion of The Children's School.

      Thanks !
