    1. The Proposed Grade Expansion of a District 75 Program (75R373) from K-5 to K-8 at New Building R071 Beginning in the 2013-2014 School Year

     

     

    The Proposed Co-Location of a District 79 program (79M645) with Existing Schools Holcombe L. Rucker School of Community Research (08X332) and Banana Kelly High School (08X530) in Building X039 Beginning in 2013-2014

     

    I.    Description of the subject and purpose of the proposed item under consideration.

     

    The New York City Department of Education (“DOE”) is proposing to open a new site for an existing District 79 program, The School of Cooperative Technical Education (79M645, “Co-op Tech”), in building X039 (“X039”), located at 965 Longwood Avenue, Bronx, NY 10459 in Community School District 8 (“District 8”) beginning in the 2013-2014 school year. If this proposal is approved, Co-op Tech will be co-located in building X039 with Holcombe L. Rucker School of Community Research (08X332, “Holcombe L. Rucker”) and Banana Kelly High School (08X530, “Banana Kelly”), two existing district high schools serving students in grades nine through twelve.

     

    As part of District 79 Alternative Schools and Programs, Co-op Tech provides part-time programming in which students receive rigorous technical instruction combined with meaningful career development opportunities and support services. Co-op Tech offers Career and Technical Education (“CTE”) classes, industry-recognized assessments and certifications, and work-based learning opportunities. Co-op Tech’s shared instructional model allows students to attend an academic program for a half- day at the school in which he or she is enrolled and attend Co-op Tech’s CTE classes for the other half of the day. All students participating in Co-op Tech’s program remain on register at their home school and will receive their diploma from their home school, provided they satisfy the applicable graduation requirements.

     

    Co-op Tech serves a vast array of students, many of whom face significant obstacles, need additional supports to succeed in their current academic setting, or require alternative pathways to attain a high school or General Educational Development (“GED”) diploma. Aged 16 to 21, Co-op Tech students attend a wide range of secondary programs tailored to meet their individual needs. Students attend traditional high schools, GED programs, and/or drug treatment facilities.  In addition, some students are re-entering the community from correctional and involuntary settings, possess an Individualized Education Program (“IEP”) or IEP diploma, or are post-graduates. The average length of participation for these students can vary from one semester to one year depending on their current educational plan.

     

    According to the 2011-2012 Enrollment, Capacity, Utilization Report (“Blue Book”), X039 has a target capacity of 1,050 students. During the 2012-2013 school year the building is serving 710 students, yielding a building utilization rate of 68%. In 2013-2014, when Co-op Tech is co-located in building X039, it is projected that there will be 770-862 students served in X039, for a building utilization rate of 73%-82%.

    The Proposed Opening and Co-Location of a New Site of an Existing District 75 Program (75X168) with P.S. 160 Walt Disney (11X160) and The Equality Charter School (84X488) in Building X160 Beginning in 2013-2014

     

    I.    Description of the subject and purpose of the proposed item under consideration.

     

    The New York City Department of Education (“DOE”) is proposing to open and co-locate a new site of P168X (75X168, “P168X”), an existing District 75 program (“D75”), in building X160 (“X160”), to be called “P168X@X160.” Building X160 is located at 4140 Hutchinson River Parkway East, Bronx, NY 10475 in Community School District 11 (“District 11”). If this proposal is approved,  P168X@X160 will be co-located with P.S. 160 Walt Disney (11X160, “P.S. 160”), an existing elementary school serving students in kindergarten through fifth grades,  and The Equality Charter School (84X488, “Equality”), an existing public charter school serving students in sixth through eighth grades. A “co-location” means that two or more school organizations are located in the same building and may share common spaces like auditoriums, gymnasiums, and cafeterias.

                                                                                                                                                 

    Based on projected need, the D75 office is seeking to increase its capacity to serve students with autism and intellectual disabilities within the Bronx. If this proposal is approved, the DOE will open a new site for an existing D75 program in the 2013-2014 school year to help meet growing demand. P168X@X160 plans to serve a range of students across grades kindergarten through eight who are been classified as autistic or learning disabled on their Individualized Education Programs (“IEP”). P168X@X160 is projected to serve nine sections of elementary and middle school students in self-contained settings. Students will be placed in class sections based on their needs and recommended special education services, and may be served in this program throughout the course of their elementary and middle school education.

     

    According to the 2011-2012 Enrollment, Capacity, Utilization Report (“Blue Book”), X160 has a target capacity of 889 students. (The concept of “target capacity” is explained below in Section II).  During the 2012-2013 school year the building is serving 614 students, yielding a building utilization rate of 69%. This means that the building is “underutilized” and has space that could be used more efficiently to accommodate additional students.   In 2013-2014, when P168X@X160 opens, it is projected that there will be 604-727 students served in X160, yielding a building utilization rate of 68%-82%.

    The Proposed Closure of New Day Academy (12X245) at the End of the 2012-2013 School Year

     

    I.    Description of the subject and purpose of the proposed item under consideration.

     

    The New York City Department of Education (“DOE”) is proposing to close New Day Academy  (12X245, “New Day”), an existing secondary school in building X158 (“X158”) located at 800 Home Street, Bronx, NY 10456, within the geographic confines of Community School District 12 (“District 12”).  In February 2011, the Panel for Educational Policy (“PEP”) approved the phase-out of New Day based on the school’s poor performance and the DOE’s assessment that the school lacked the ability to improve quickly to better support student needs. That proposal can be found here: http://schools.nyc.gov/AboutUs/leadership/PEP/publicnotice/2010-2011/Feb12011PEP.htm.  Pursuant to that proposal, New Day currently serves students in grades eight, eleven, and twelve.  New Day was originally planned to serve only grade twelve in the 2013-2014 school year and was approved to close in June of 2014.

     

    However, the DOE is now proposing to close New Day at the end of the 2012-2013 school year based on lower than anticipated student enrollment and demand from when the school was first proposed for phase-out. Under this proposal, currently enrolled middle school students on track to graduate will advance to high school as planned, while those students who do not meet promotional criteria at the end of the 2012-2013 school year will be provided with an alternate placement at another middle school for the 2013-2014 school year. Currently enrolled high school students on track to graduate at the end of the 2012-2013 school year, will not be impacted by this proposal. High school students currently enrolled at New Day who are not scheduled to graduate or who do not meet promotional criteria at the end of this year will be provided with an alternative placement at another high school for the 2013-2014 school year.

     

    New Day is co-located with Bronx Latin (12X267, “Bronx Latin”), an existing secondary school currently serving students in grades six through twelve, Bronx Career and College Preparatory High School (12X479, “Bronx Career”), an existing high school serving students in grades nine through twelve, and Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School (84X482, “Dr. Izquierdo Charter School”), a charter school currently serving students in grades six through eight, which is in the process of phasing in to serve students in grades sixth through twelve.

     

    New Day is in its second year of phase-out. New Day no longer admits new sixth-grade students through the District 12 Middle School Choice Process or ninth-grade students through the High School Admissions Process. If this proposal is approved, New Day will close at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. The other schools located in X158 will continue to serve the grade levels as planned and Dr. Izquierdo Charter School will continue adding additional grades until it reaches full scale.

     

    There is sufficient capacity in middle schools throughout the district and high schools throughout the borough and City to accommodate students who might have attended New Day if it remained open until the completion of its phase-out in June 2014. If this proposal is approved, the Office of Student Enrollment will work with parents of current students at New Day to assess options to transfer to other middle and high schools in the Spring of 2013.

    The Proposed Opening and Co-location of New District Transfer School Research and Service High School (16K669) with Boys and Girls High School (16K455) in Building K455 Beginning in 2013-2014

     

    I.    Description of the subject and purpose of the proposed item under consideration.

     

    The New York City Department of Education (“DOE”) is proposing to open and co-locate Research and Service High School (16K669, “Research and Service High School”), a new district transfer high school that will serve students in ninth through twelfth grade in building K455 (“K455”), located at 1700 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11213, in Community School District 16 (“District 16”). Research and Service High School would open in 2013-2014 with ninth through twelfth grades. Transfer schools are small, academically rigorous high schools designed to reengage over-age, under-credited students.  If this proposal is approved, Research and Service High School will be co-located in K455 with Boys and Girls High School (16K455, “Boys and Girls”), an existing high school that accepts students through the Citywide High School Admissions Process through zoned and screened admissions method.

     

    Building K455 also contains the Boys and Girls Young Adult Borough Center (16K959, “YABC”), a General Educational Development Plus program (79Q950, “GED Plus”), and a United Federation of Teachers (“UFT”) Chapter office. Next year, there will also be a School-Based Health Center (“SBHC”) located in K455. Young Adult Borough Centers (“YABCs”) are evening academic programs designed to meet the needs of high school students who might be considering dropping out because they are behind or because they have adult responsibilities that make attending school in the daytime difficult. Students graduate with a diploma from their home school after they have earned all of their credits and passed all of the required exams while attending the YABC. More information about YABCs can be found at http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/ECC31A4F-9112-4FB7-9CBA-D01DC696F315/128549/YABC_Brochure_v3.pdf. GED Plus programs help students earn their GEDs and prepare them for college and career options. GED Plus programs are offered to students who are 18-21 years old and are available as full-time or part-time programs. More information about GED Programs is available at http://schools.nyc.gov/Offices/District79/SchoolsProgramsServices/default.htm.

     

    Research and Service High School would accept students 16 years of age and older who have attended another New York City public high school for at least one year, and are behind in high school or at risk of dropping out. Each transfer school determines admissions criteria individually. Detailed information about Research and Service High School’s admissions criteria can be found in Section III.A of this proposal.

     

    Research and Service High School will open during the 2013-2014 school year and will serve approximately 130-170 students in grades nine through twelve. In each of the two subsequent years, the school will enroll approximately 50 additional students. Research and Service High School is expected to reach full scale in terms of enrollment in 2015-2016, when it will serve approximately 230-270 students in grades nine through twelve.

     

    Research and Service High School is also expected to offer a Learning to Work (“LTW”) program. The goal of LTW is to assist students in overcoming obstacles that impede their progress toward a high school diploma and lead them toward rewarding employment and educational experiences after graduation. LTW offers academic and student support, career and educational exploration, work preparation, skills development, and internships. LTW will be an integral component of the academic program at Research and Service High School. LTW is not a separate program.  

     

    The DOE has identified building K455 as an under-utilized building. Building K455 has the capacity to serve 3,389 students, but in 2012-2013, Boys and Girls is currently enrolling 1,114 students in ninth through twelfth grade. This yields a building utilization rate of approximately 33%, which demonstrates that the building is “under-utilized” and has space to accommodate additional students. If this proposal is approved in 2015-2016, building K455 would serve 1,325-1,405 students from Research and Service High School and Boys and Girls, collectively,  which yields a projected utilization rate of 39%-41%. Thus, building K455 has sufficient space to accommodate the proposed co-location.

     

    The DOE acknowledges that if this proposal is approved, building K455 will still be considered under-utilized after the full phase-in of Research and Service High School. The DOE plans to issue a separate proposal to open and co-locate an additional new school option in building K455 for the 2014-2015 school year. A separate Educational Impact Statement (“EIS”) will be issued for this proposal
