A new public school has been proposed for Ocean Avenue between Avenue L and Avenue M, according to Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) who was just notified by the New York City Department of Education (DoE) regarding their plans. The new primary school (PS), which is proposed to open in September, 2016, will serve approximately 456 children in grades pre-K through fifth (5th).
Assemblyman Hikind was told that the proposed primary school will serve neighborhood children. He noted that Community Board 14 has already been notified regarding the proposed school.
Prior to making their recommendations to the DoE’s School Construction Authority (SCA), Community Board 14 will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, March 6 at 7 pm at CB-14’s office at 810 East 16th Street (corner of Ave. H). Board members will then vote on their recommendation at the Community Board’s regular monthly meeting on Monday, March 11 at 7:30 pm. The board meeting will take place at the Edward R. Murrow High School at 1600 Avenue L. The SCA will continue to accept public comments until March 25.
Assemblyman Hikind asks that community members contact his district office at 718-853-9616 with any questions or concerns.
