CEC 13 would also like to congratulate the achievements of a number of other wonderful Brooklyn district public schools at chess nationals including IS318 and PS 31 in District 14; PS 503 and PS 160 in District 20; and PS 139 in District 22.

PS 11 is National Blue Ribbon School Award Winner!

District 13’s own PS11, The Purvis J. Behan School has been named  a National Blue Ribbon School by the US DOE. 

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan designates 337 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. These schools demonstrate that all students can achieve to high levels. The Department will honor 287 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 10-11 in Washington, D.C. Each school will receive a plaque and a flag as symbols of their status as National Blue Ribbon Schools. In its 32-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on just under 7,900 of America’s schools.

Details on the award can be seen on the USDOE website: http://nationalblueribbonschools.ed.gov/awardwinners/

From Superintendent Freeman and all of the D13 Community Education Council, Congratulations to Principal Wrighton, the staff, families and children of PS11!
