Discuss Overcrowding in Our Schools Next Wednesday Night

Discuss Overcrowding in Our Schools Next Wednesday Night

I often hear from parents concerned about overcrowding in District 15 elementary schools. In light of the growing concerns about crowding, especially at PS 29, PS 32, and PS 58, next week on Wednesday night, several of your local Brooklyn elected officials will be holding a forum to discuss the issue.

Let’s Talk about Overcrowding (Community Forum)
Wednesday, October 21 form 7-9 PM
P.S 58 (330 Smith Street, between Carroll and 1st Place)
RSVP on Facebook

The event is open to all parents that are interested in learning more about the issue of overcrowding in District 15 public schools, but will focus on PS 29, PS 32, and PS 58 specifically.

I also have some good news to share on the topic. After my request back in 2012, the DOE agreed to study the possibility of building in the rear yard at P.S. 32 (where the trailers are). I'm pleased to report that they are now moving forward to build a 436-seat addition there. It will take a few years for this addition to be built, of course, and we will need to decide how to use that new capacity to meet our community's growing need. It won't solve all our problems, but it’s a very good step forward.

Thanks to the many event sponsors including, CEC 15, State Senator Daniel Squadron, State Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon, State Senator Velmanette Montgomery, Council Member Steve Levin, Community Board 6, and 52nd AD Paige Bellenbaum, for organizing this important conversation.

See you at the forum on Wednesday.
