- Oct 28, 2013View SourceI believe I these Ten Reasons,
Number 1. Is right on, in David's own words co-loc in coed schools don't Work.
Number 4. Does Ea a researched based reading method to really help students learn to read or are they just like all the other public schools struggling that don't know how to teach students that are dyslexic. Funding could go into teaching these reading methods instead of just helping their behavior.
Number 8.is what the Staten Island leaders wanted always but couldn't find a building.
Number 9.the most important one. The Majority of the feeder elementary schools Student populations do not represent EA targeted group of boys.
EA should be a district school in a building all their own, As we the parents just now being to learn of this proposal that has been a district conversation for years, We are upset that No True conversation to the Communities affected was ever explained. our North Shore Communities are growing, no I.S.49 was not impacted Physically by Super storm Sandy about we got a lot of new families from Brooklyn and Queens and they are starting new growth along with the new HomePort Development We See the North Shore Changing. To put an old idea into a new growing communities is wrong to the unknowing families that are coming here to Staten Island to live. And of cause David would agree by his own words to have a building all his own for his Boys.
Thank you, mr. Portelos for all you still do for our school I.S.49
Please come out and help stop a Co-location that has been Unjustly Recommended To our Unknowing New Communities
School register as of oct 18, 2013, 39% Hispanic, 11.40% Asian, 35% Black, and 12.90% White. Only 35% of our students represent the targeted group of boys, EA is open to all Boys but only one group is represented in sharing this information with their members. We need the voices of ALL that comes to our school.

I believe this was strategic neglect and the school was primed for co-location for years. No accountability. Please support.
