Last Month, the NYC Department of Education released the Educational Impact Statement proposing the phase-out of M.S. 571 - The Bergen Upper School, and a re-siting and co-location of Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School in the 13K009 building. The DOE claims M.S. 571 “lacks the capacity to turn around” and there’s a need of high-quality options in school district 13. Much like P.S. 316 and M.S. 353, the DOE is not allowing the possible expansion and growth of P.S. 9.

Join parents, students and public officials who are demanding local schools be given a chance to succeed and grow!
