The SECOND public hearing regarding the extension of PAVE Academy's co-location within P.S. 15 is this Wednesday at P.S. 15, 71 Sullivan Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn. Please arrive at 5:30 to sign up to speak. The hearing begins at 6:00. Why are we having another public hearing when the process was considered null and void by a Supreme Court Judge? Who knows, but it is an admission of guilt by the DOE to grant this "do-over" and it is a time and place to share your thoughts and ideas on what has been taking place throughout this school year. Your statements are recorded and a Department of Education employee creates a summary of comments with a tally of those opposed or in favor of the issue. Please make sure when you speak you include the statement "I am opposed to the extension of this co-location," to ensure your comment is counted. Our students deserve appropriate space to receive their mandated services. Our school community deserves the intervention and enrichment programs that provide the well-rounded experience our school mission statement promises; "...We encourage strong parent participation as well as a collaborative and professional partnership with community-based organizations that address the physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social needs of our children." The Department of Education refuses to acknowledge the negative impact this co-location has on our school community, let's make sure out voices are heard!
