Description of Zone Changes for District 32 in Effect for 2013-14 School Year

Proposal Information

On November 27, 2012, Community Education Council 32 voted to change the current zones for P.S. 123, P.S. 86, P.S. 116, and P.S. 376.  The approved zone changes for the 2013-14 school year may be found in the map provided below. 

 

Why did the CEC approve this zone change?

·         To alleviate extreme overcrowding conditions in District 24 elementary schools, where some residents of District 32 were zoned for.

 

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

·         Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 81/P.S. 305 in District 24, Queens, will now be zoned for P.S. 123, P.S. 86, or P.S. 116.

·         Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 86 will now be zoned for P.S. 123.

·         Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 116 will now be zoned for P.S. 376.

 

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.
