Tonight is our annual CEC meeting. We will be electing officers and also hearing from the DOE about on-going discussions regarding downtown Brooklyn school planning, among other important topics.
The meeting is 6:30pm at the District office at 355 Park Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11238
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams wants the New York State Legislature to allow parents of kids enrolled in the citywide pre-K program to sit on local Community Education Councils.
Currently, parents of prekindergartners are banned from participating. Only those with at least one child enrolled in a city schools between kindergarten and 12th grade can sit on the councils.
“This is a bill that just makes good sense. This is the ABCs of improving our schools, of allowing our parents to participate at the Pre-K level and ensure early involvement is there,” Adams said.
