PROPOSED AND APPROVED: Description of Zone Changes for P.S. 170, P.S. 69, P.S. 105, P.S. 127, and P.S. 176 in Effect for 2013-14 School Year

Proposal Information

On November 5, 2012, Community Education Council 20 voted to change the current zone for P.S. 170, P.S. 69, P.S. 105, P.S. 127, and P.S. 176.  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?

·         To create an elementary school zone for P.S./I.S. 30.  I.S. 30, a current middle school, was approved by the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP) on May 23, 2012, to expand to serve grades K-8 at scale, starting in Fall 2013

·         To leverage P.S./I.S. 30’s new elementary capacity to address growing demand and reduce waitlists and capping in other District 20 elementary schools.

 

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

·         Some students previously zoned to P.S. 170 and P.S. 127 will now be zoned to P.S./I.S. 30 beginning in September 2013.

·         Some students previously zoned to P.S. 127, P.S. 176, and P.S. 69 will now be zoned to P.S. 170 beginning in September 2013.

·         Some students previously zoned to P.S. 105 will now be zoned to P.S. 69 beginning in September 2013.

·         Some students previously zoned to P.S. 176 will now be zoned to P.S. 127 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[1], kindergarten students would be admitted in the following order of priority:

o   First Priority*. Zoned students with verified siblings who will be enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school as of September 2013

 

o   Second Priority. Zoned students without siblings applying to the zoned school

 

o   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

 

o   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.
