Why did the CEC approve this zone change?

To create a zone for a new elementary school in new building Q315, located at 96-18 43rd Avenue, slated to open for the 2015-2016 school year.To reduce the zone sizes of P.S. 307, P.S. 16, P.S. 19, and P.S. 13, and to reduce to the need to overflow students from these schools to other schools outside of the neighborhood.
 

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

Some residents in the southern portion of the P.S. 19 zone will now be zoned for the elementary school in building Q315.

Some residents in the southern portion of the P.S. 307 zone will now be zoned for the elementary school in building Q315.

Some residents in the southern portion of the P.S. 16 zone will now be zoned for the elementary school in building Q315.

Some residents in the northeast portion of the P.S. 13 zone will now be zoned for the elementary school in building Q315.

Some residents in the northwest portion of the P.S. 307 zone will now be zoned for P.S. 19.
 


What will this mean for my family?

The proposed changes would impact only incoming kindergarten students or students that are new to the system in 2015-2016. All currently enrolled students may remain in their school. Children whose verified siblings are enrolled in a school impacted by a re-zoning plan adopted by the CEC will maintain zoned sibling priority to that impacted school. 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 studwents 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) who are residents of that district

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