The vote on the proposed rezoning plan for P.S. 130, P.S. 131, P.S. 154, and P.S. 230 will be held in just three weeks. On Wednesday, November 12th, the Community Education Council (CEC) District 15 will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the P.S. 230 upper school at 1 Albemarle Road, between McDonald Avenue and Dahill Road.

The meeting is open to families of current and future students at these schools and to everyone else who is interested in the future of our school district's public schools.

The goals of the proposed rezoning plan are:
  • Expand the zone for P.S. 130. Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, P.S. 130 will have additional capacity if School 437, now under construction, is used as a secondary site for P.S. 130.
  • Alleviate overcrowding in District 15.
  • Decrease the number of students capped and overflowed from Sunset Park and Borough Park by expanding the P.S. 230 zone.

The full presentation of the proposed rezoning plan is posted here, a brief summary is laid out here, and FAQs and a map of the rezoned areas are here.
