P.S. 94’s PTA Plans Campaign to Stay on Houston Street

Must Read

Earlier today, we reported the Girls Prep is advocating a plan to expand its middle school that would force out P.S. 94, a special needs school. Girls Prep, P.S. 94 and P.S. 188 all share a building on Houston Street, near FDR Drive. A few minutes ago, Jessica Santos, P.S. 94's PTA president told me she's unhappy about the prospect the school might have to relocate, in part because the children are all autistic – and would not respond well to a sudden change in routine. Santos is talking with parents tonight, and planning an organizational meeting at the school tomorrow afternoon.

The Department of Education is considering three plans to accommodate Girls Prep's desire to grow. This morning, the school's founder, Miriam Raccah, told us proposal #1, requiring P.S. 94 to move out of the district, was the only one of the three that seemed viable.

Girls Prep is, apparently, not the only school, picking the plan. The P.S. 20 parents' newsletter declares (in all caps), "WE WANT PROPOSAL NUMBER 1!"  It's a somewhat surprising stance since P.S. 20 is part of a coalition working in a coalition with District 1's Community Education Council to formulate an alternative plan acceptable to all of the neighborhood schools.
