Portfolio Planning 

PROPOSED AND APPROVED: Description of Zone Changes for P.S. 138, P.S. 100, and P.S. 182 in Effect for 2013-14 School Year

Proposal Information

On November 14, 2012, Community Education Council 8 voted to change the current zone for P.S. 138, P.S. 100, and P.S. 182.  The approved zone changes for the 2013-14 school year may be found in the maps provided below.  


Why did the CEC approve this zone change? 

  • The Department of Education plans to rezone P.S. 138, P.S. 100, and P.S. 182 to reduce the zone size of P.S. 138.



What changes should families expect as a result of this re-zoning? 

  • Some students previously zoned for P.S. 138 will now be zoned for P.S. 182 beginning in September 2013.
  • Some students previously zoned for P.S. 182 will now be zoned for P.S. 100 beginning in September 2013.



What will this mean for my family? 

  • The proposed changes would impact only incoming Kindergarten students or students that are new to the system.  All currently enrolled students may remain at their school.  As stated in Chancellor’s Regulation A-101, Kindergarten students would be admitted in the following order of priority: 
    • First Priority. Zoned students with verified siblings who will be enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school as of September 2013.
    • Second Priority. Zoned students without siblings applying to the zoned school
    • Third Priority. Non-zoned students with verified siblings who will be enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school as of September 2013:

                                                a. Within district first, then
                                                b. Out of district

  • Fourth Priority. Non-zoned students without siblings:

                                                a. Within district first, then
                                                b. Out of district

*Current in zone siblings who would be zoned out based on the proposed lines will be grandfathered as an in-zone sibling.
