P36K is located in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn. This school serves a population of approximately 170 students. The majority of students are classified as having either emotional/behavioral difficulties or cognitive delays. Students come to P36K because previous school placements have been unsuccessful, or they require a more restrictive school setting in order to be successful. It is with this understanding that a multifaceted approach to identifying, assessing, and referring students as candidates for enrollment in special education services at P36K has been developed and executed.
