PROPOSED AND APPROVED: Zone Changes for P.S. 169, P.S. 94, P.S. 24, P.S. 1 and Sunset Park Avenues Elementary School in Effect for the 2014-2015 School Year

Proposal Information

On November 25, 2013, Community Education Council 15 voted to change the current zones for P.S. 169, P.S. 94, P.S. 24, and P.S. 1. 

The approved zone changes for the 2014-2015 school year may be found in the maps provided below.  A copy of the CEC's resolution will be posted here as soon as it is available.   To review the updated map, scroll to the linked map at the bottom of this entry.

Why did the CEC approve this zone change?
  • To create a zone for Sunset Park Avenues Elementary School; and
  • To reduce the need to waitlist, cap, and overflow students zoned to Sunset Park area schools.

What changes should families expect as a result of this re-zoning?
  • Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 94 will now be zoned to P.S. 1, beginning in September 2014.
  • Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 94 will now be zoned to P.S. 169, beginning in September 2014.
  • Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 24 will now be zoned to Sunset Park Avenues Elementary School, beginning in September 2014.
  • Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 169 will now be zoned to Sunset Park Avenues Elementary School, beginning in September 2014.
  • Some residents previously zoned for P.S. 169 will now be zoned to P.S. 24, beginning in September 2014.

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:

1. Zoned students whose verified siblings are pre-registered or enrolled at the time of application submission and will be enrolled in grades K-5 in the school at the start of the following school year;

2. Zoned students other than those in (1) above applying to the zoned school;

3. Students whose verified siblings are pre-registered or enrolled at the time of application  submission and will be enrolled in grades K-5 in the school at the start of the following school year who are not zoned to the school
a. Within District first, then
b. Out of district;


4. Students currently attending the school's pre-kindergarten program who reside outside the school's zone without a sibling who will be in grades K-5 at the school in the following school year,
a. Within District first, then
b. Out of District;

5. Students other than those in (3a) and (4a) above who are residents of that district;

6. Students other than those in (3b) and (4b) who are residents of another district.

    * Families whose addresses have been rezoned, but who have a child enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school at the time of admission of an incoming kindergarten student, will retain first priority for admission to kindergarten equivalent to a zoned sibling.
