          Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
          If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

            A second new school, to be located in Queens, will feature a computer science and business technology theme. Through the relationship with SAP, the worldwide leader in business technology solutions, students gain expertise in cloud, in-memory, mobile, and analytics technologies. Students will learn to use this knowledge to design IT solutions that anticipate people’s needs.

            whereas the P-Techs=
             the successful 9-14 school created by the New York City Department of Education, the City University of New York, New York City College of Technology and IBM in 2011. IBM, the City’s first industry partner, guarantees that graduates will be first in line for jobs. Chancellor Walcott made the announcement at Microsoft’s Manhattan offices with City University of New York Chancellor William P. Kelly, IBM’s Stanley Litow, and other industry partners.

            Including P-TECH, the City has created three Early College and Career schools, two of whichâ€"Energy Tech High School, partnered with Con Edison and National Grid, and Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School, partnered with Montefiore Medical Centerâ€"will open in September 2013. With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

            Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
            If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

              The NYC DOE has a directory of new high schools for September 2013...

               Energy Tech HS (grades 9-14)  is going into the space that was used by Academy for Careers in TV and Film which is getting its own building.  This spaced is shared with IS 204 in Long Island City.

              Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
              If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                I love the way that P-tech is hugely hyped as a “successful” school by DOE and even Obama and a model to be replicated when it was only started two years ago and is far from even having a graduating class.

                The three new schools are not P-Tech schools- but supposedly " modeled" on them.

                A second new school, to be located in Queens, will feature a computer science and business technology theme. Through the relationship with SAP, the worldwide leader in business technology solutions, students gain expertise in cloud, in-memory, mobile, and analytics technologies. Students will learn to use this knowledge to design IT solutions that anticipate people’s needs.

                 

                whereas the P-Techs=

                 the successful 9-14 school created by the New York City Department of Education, the City University of New York, New York City College of Technology and IBM in 2011. IBM, the City’s first industry partner, guarantees that graduates will be first in line for jobs. Chancellor Walcott made the announcement at Microsoft’s Manhattan offices with City University of New York Chancellor William P. Kelly, IBM’s Stanley Litow, and other industry partners.

                Including P-TECH, the City has created three Early College and Career schools, two of whichâ€"Energy Tech High School, partnered with Con Edison and National Grid, and Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School, partnered with Montefiore Medical Centerâ€"will open in September 2013. With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

                  Can folks in D6 and D30 please confirm you had OPM visits/presentations on the planned colocos of the three new CTE schools?

                  Our August CEC 1 meeting is tonight but OPM never contacted us to get on the agenda.

                   Notice has gone out with the agenda, and the Comm Dist Sup just called me to let me know that she will be making a statement on behalf of OPM on the HS coloco.

                  Is this proper notice? community engagement? 
                  So no one who is actually "accountable" will be present to address any questions?

                  Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                  If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                    OPP attended D6 CEC meeting on August 15 and announced that they plan to co-locate a Early College/CTE school at IS52, which had requested a grade expansion to HS and has an honors program and serves our D6 student community.  The IS52 building already contain two schools: IS52 and High School for Excellence and Innovation (an overage/under credit HS of @221 students; opened in 2009 in supposedly temporary space).  The new CTE high school would not give preference to D6 students.
                    We have, as has CEC30, pointed out that simply announcing a plan does not equal consultation.  We (the CEC) have not met with the affected school communities; we have not been given adequate notice to conduct a walk through; the EIS has not been produced.  Our CEC6 Secretary, Yudy Valdez, is a parent leader at IS52 and has grave concerns about the proposed co-location.  We have demanded that the DOE engage in authentic community consultation.
                    We all know why they are rushing these co-locations through.  I am sure CECs 1, 6 and 30 can unite in opposition to yet another round of divisive co-locations founded on the DOE's impoverished vision of the infrastructure and environment required for a successful school.

                    Our August CEC 1 meeting is tonight but OPM never contacted us to get on the agenda.

                     Notice has gone out with the agenda, and the Comm Dist Sup just called me to let me know that she will be making a statement on behalf of OPM on the HS coloco.

                    Is this proper notice? community engagement? 
                    So no one who is actually "accountable" will be present to address any questions?

                    Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                    If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                      Interestingly,  OPM sent a rep to our CEC meeting  in June to talk about the plans for 2014 and NO need for CTE HSs was ever raised.
                      This was not something that had been planned or discussed in any community meeting of any kind, until dropped in from above.
                      I guess meeting the needs of the ADULTS and disregarding anyone needs in the community, esp those of students in schools.

                      And it even interferes with the stated plans to improve/expand pre-K,  MS and DL education in our community by pushing in more citywide seats and failing to follow through- for the 2nd year in a row- on OPM's stated plans in those areas.


                      Furthermore this is one of DoE's early new small schools that is getting squeezed by their newest venture. 

                      Creative destruction of their own innovations? HUH?

                      OPP attended D6 CEC meeting on August 15 and announced that they plan to co-locate a Early College/CTE school at IS52, which had requested a grade expansion to HS and has an honors program and serves our D6 student community.  The IS52 building already contain two schools: IS52 and High School for Excellence and Innovation (an overage/under credit HS of @221 students; opened in 2009 in supposedly temporary space).  The new CTE high school would not give preference to D6 students.
                      We have, as has CEC30, pointed out that simply announcing a plan does not equal consultation.  We (the CEC) have not met with the affected school communities; we have not been given adequate notice to conduct a walk through; the EIS has not been produced.  Our CEC6 Secretary, Yudy Valdez, is a parent leader at IS52 and has grave concerns about the proposed co-location.  We have demanded that the DOE engage in authentic community consultation.
                      We all know why they are rushing these co-locations through.  I am sure CECs 1, 6 and 30 can unite in opposition to yet another round of divisive co-locations founded on the DOE's impoverished vision of the infrastructure and environment required for a successful school.

With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

                      Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                      If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                        I attended last week's D30 CEC meeting.  We have a majority of newly-elected CEC members, and OPM's stated reason for being there was primarily to introduce themselves and give an overview of what their office does.  They then gave some bullet points about upcoming priorities vis-a-vis D30, and what might be coming down the pike at the next couple of PEP's.  One of those "upcoming priorities" was the colocation of a CTE school at LIC H.S.  I don't believe they intended on making a presentation to the community or CEC about their proposal...quite the opposite, in fact.  They tried their best to defer any questions to the forthcoming EIS.

                        The three new schools are not P-Tech schools- but supposedly " modeled" on them.

                        A second new school, to be located in Queens, will feature a computer science and business technology theme. Through the relationship with SAP, the worldwide leader in business technology solutions, students gain expertise in cloud, in-memory, mobile, and analytics technologies. Students will learn to use this knowledge to design IT solutions that anticipate people’s needs.

IBM, the City’s first industry partner, guarantees that graduates will be first in line for jobs. Chancellor Walcott made the announcement at Microsoft’s Manhattan offices with City University of New York Chancellor William P. Kelly, IBM’s Stanley Litow, and other industry partners.

                        Including P-TECH, the City has created three Early College and Career schools, two of whichâ€"Energy Tech High School, partnered with Con Edison and National Grid, and Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School, partnered with Montefiore Medical Centerâ€"will open in September 2013. With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

                        Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                        If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                          The deck they presented to us (D6) was also generic and did not contain info on the proposed co-locos.  They know of course that the clock starts when they release the EIS.  And as I pointed out when they co-located a new school at PS132 last year, they published the public comment the day of the PEP (in English only, so the Spanish language dominant commenters had no way to evaluate whether their comments were captured; not that it matters as the PEP only got it that day as well).  The 45 day comment period runs right up to the PEP meeting (the result of which has been written); that in and if itself shows what a farce this consultation is.

                          I attended last week's D30 CEC meeting.  We have a majority of newly-elected CEC members, and OPM's stated reason for being there was primarily to introduce themselves and give an overview of what their office does.  They then gave some bullet points about upcoming priorities vis-a-vis D30, and what might be coming down the pike at the next couple of PEP's.  One of those "upcoming priorities" was the colocation of a CTE school at LIC H.S.  I don't believe they intended on making a presentation to the community or CEC about their proposal...quite the opposite, in fact.  They tried their best to defer any questions to the forthcoming EIS.

                          Funny that CEC 1 would not get the same courtesy sham visits masquerading as consultation as the other CECs (6 and 30) did.
                           Were you guys so rough on them they gave up the pretense of "community consultation or engagement"?
                          Or is OPM now so afraid of the community that they dare not attend a meeting/ engage directly with any of us?
                          Or is OPM just so  disorganized that they can not schedule their mandated engagement public meetings w/ CECs via DFACE?
                          Or is OPM so full of hubris that the colocos will go through regardless of process, or merit, that they do not even pretend to do more than phone it in beyond whatever legally mandated process ( A-190, which is such a joke, thanks to our NYS legislature)?

                          Interestingly,  OPM sent a rep to our CEC meeting  in June to talk about the plans for 2014 and NO need for CTE HSs was ever raised.
                          This was not something that had been planned or discussed in any community meeting of any kind, until dropped in from above.
                          I guess meeting the needs of the ADULTS and disregarding anyone needs in the community, esp those of students in schools.

                          And it even interferes with the stated plans to improve/expand pre-K,  MS and DL education in our community by pushing in more citywide seats and failing to follow through- for the 2nd year in a row- on OPM's stated plans in those areas.


                          Furthermore this is one of DoE's early new small schools that is getting squeezed by their newest venture. 

                          Creative destruction of their own innovations? HUH?

                          OPP attended D6 CEC meeting on August 15 and announced that they plan to co-locate a Early College/CTE school at IS52, which had requested a grade expansion to HS and has an honors program and serves our D6 student community.  The IS52 building already contain two schools: IS52 and High School for Excellence and Innovation (an overage/under credit HS of @221 students; opened in 2009 in supposedly temporary space).  The new CTE high school would not give preference to D6 students.
                          We have, as has CEC30, pointed out that simply announcing a plan does not equal consultation.  We (the CEC) have not met with the affected school communities; we have not been given adequate notice to conduct a walk through; the EIS has not been produced.  Our CEC6 Secretary, Yudy Valdez, is a parent leader at IS52 and has grave concerns about the proposed co-location.  We have demanded that the DOE engage in authentic community consultation.
                          We all know why they are rushing these co-locations through.  I am sure CECs 1, 6 and 30 can unite in opposition to yet another round of divisive co-locations founded on the DOE's impoverished vision of the infrastructure and environment required for a successful school.

With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

                            I can confirm that OPM came and did a presentation to CDEC 30 indicating that an EIS for a colocation at LIC HS will be forthcoming for an October 30 PEP vote.  We asked whether it would be one of the schools in this press release and OPM stated that it would not but did not give any further details.  The presentation was more geared at introducing OPM and its role and did not appear to be a formal rollout of a proposal for one of these three schools. 

                            We have taken the position that this is not sufficient community engagement and have asked OPM to meet with the affected community (which we believe is citywide and not districtwide because it is a high school) PRIOR to issuing the EIS, and further asked that the proposal be pushed back to the December PEP meeting.  We have not received a response from OPM on this request as of yet.

                            I will send you the letter that we sent to OPM under separate cover.

                            Our August CEC 1 meeting is tonight but OPM never contacted us to get on the agenda.

                             Notice has gone out with the agenda, and the Comm Dist Sup just called me to let me know that she will be making a statement on behalf of OPM on the HS coloco.

                            Is this proper notice? community engagement? 
                            So no one who is actually "accountable" will be present to address any questions?

                              They know that once the EIS is out it's a fait accompli.  Our President and several returning members voiced this exact concern and politely requested that OPM come to LIC H.S. BEFORE they completed the EIS so OPM could obtain the community feedback they *say* they use in shaping proposals.  Any bets on this actually happening?

                              The deck they presented to us (D6) was also generic and did not contain info on the proposed co-locos.  They know of course that the clock starts when they release the EIS.  And as I pointed out when they co-located a new school at PS132 last year, they published the public comment the day of the PEP (in English only, so the Spanish language dominant commenters had no way to evaluate whether their comments were captured; not that it matters as the PEP only got it that day as well).  The 45 day comment period runs right up to the PEP meeting (the result of which has been written); that in and if itself shows what a farce this consultation is.
                              Lisa is your CEC newish? We have 5 returning members and several new but experienced and active parent leaders.

                              I attended last week's D30 CEC meeting.  We have a majority of newly-elected CEC members, and OPM's stated reason for being there was primarily to introduce themselves and give an overview of what their office does.  They then gave some bullet points about upcoming priorities vis-a-vis D30, and what might be coming down the pike at the next couple of PEP's.  One of those "upcoming priorities" was the colocation of a CTE school at LIC H.S.  I don't believe they intended on making a presentation to the community or CEC about their proposal...quite the opposite, in fact.  They tried their best to defer any questions to the forthcoming EIS.

                              Funny that CEC 1 would not get the same courtesy sham visits masquerading as consultation as the other CECs (6 and 30) did.
                               Were you guys so rough on them they gave up the pretense of "community consultation or engagement"?
                              Or is OPM now so afraid of the community that they dare not attend a meeting/ engage directly with any of us?
                              Or is OPM just so  disorganized that they can not schedule their mandated engagement public meetings w/ CECs via DFACE?
                              Or is OPM so full of hubris that the colocos will go through regardless of process, or merit, that they do not even pretend to do more than phone it in beyond whatever legally mandated process ( A-190, which is such a joke, thanks to our NYS legislature)?

                              Interestingly,  OPM sent a rep to our CEC meeting  in June to talk about the plans for 2014 and NO need for CTE HSs was ever raised.
                              This was not something that had been planned or discussed in any community meeting of any kind, until dropped in from above.
                              I guess meeting the needs of the ADULTS and disregarding anyone needs in the community, esp those of students in schools.

                              And it even interferes with the stated plans to improve/expand pre-K,  MS and DL education in our community by pushing in more citywide seats and failing to follow through- for the 2nd year in a row- on OPM's stated plans in those areas.


                              Furthermore this is one of DoE's early new small schools that is getting squeezed by their newest venture. 

                              Creative destruction of their own innovations? HUH?

                              OPP attended D6 CEC meeting on August 15 and announced that they plan to co-locate a Early College/CTE school at IS52, which had requested a grade expansion to HS and has an honors program and serves our D6 student community.  The IS52 building already contain two schools: IS52 and High School for Excellence and Innovation (an overage/under credit HS of @221 students; opened in 2009 in supposedly temporary space).  The new CTE high school would not give preference to D6 students.
                              We have, as has CEC30, pointed out that simply announcing a plan does not equal consultation.  We (the CEC) have not met with the affected school communities; we have not been given adequate notice to conduct a walk through; the EIS has not been produced.  Our CEC6 Secretary, Yudy Valdez, is a parent leader at IS52 and has grave concerns about the proposed co-location.  We have demanded that the DOE engage in authentic community consultation.
                              We all know why they are rushing these co-locations through.  I am sure CECs 1, 6 and 30 can unite in opposition to yet another round of divisive co-locations founded on the DOE's impoverished vision of the infrastructure and environment required for a successful school.

IBM, the City’s first industry partner, guarantees that graduates will be first in line for jobs. Chancellor Walcott made the announcement at Microsoft’s Manhattan offices with City University of New York Chancellor William P. Kelly, IBM’s Stanley Litow, and other industry partners.

                              Including P-TECH, the City has created three Early College and Career schools, two of whichâ€"Energy Tech High School, partnered with Con Edison and National Grid, and Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School, partnered with Montefiore Medical Centerâ€"will open in September 2013. With the addition of these three new schools to open in 2014, by the 2017-2018 school year, over 2,000 high school students will be educated in one of the City’s six 9-14 programs.

                              Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                              If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

                                Can folks in D6 and D30 please confirm you had OPM visits/presentations on the planned colocos of the three new CTE schools?

                                Our August CEC 1 meeting is tonight but OPM never contacted us to get on the agenda.

                                 Notice has gone out with the agenda, and the Comm Dist Sup just called me to let me know that she will be making a statement on behalf of OPM on the HS coloco.

                                Is this proper notice? community engagement? 
                                So no one who is actually "accountable" will be present to address any questions?

                                Just to clarify -- OPM informed District 30 that there will be an EIS for a co-located CTE school at Long Island City High School forthcoming.  They specifically stated that it would NOT be one of these three P-Tech schools but did not give us any further information as to what would be in the proposal, besides that it would be a CTE school.
                                If anyone has heard anything about where the proposed P-Tech school in Queens will be sited please let me know.

By 2014, P-TECH will enroll over 400 students, who will be prepared either to work at IBM, or attend a four-year college.

The first, Energy Tech High School, was developed with Con Edison and National Grid and will expose students to the energy industry â€" one of the nation’s fastest growing sectors. Energy Tech students will intern with the utility companies, be mentored by energy professionals, and take college courses at CUNY’s LaGuardia Community College. The second school, Health, Education and Research Occupations High School High School, was developed in partnership with Montefiore Medical Center and CUNY’s Hostos Community College and will prepare students for careers as health professionals.
