Public Meeting on Future of New School

Tonight, Assemblymember Vanessa Gibson, Community Board 5, and others, are hosting a public forum so that parents can garner information about the new school building – PS/IS 338 – being built at 1740 Macombs Road in Morris Heights.

"Parents have expressed frustration about public school overcrowding... ," Gibson said in a statement. "This meeting brings all the important stakeholders together and provides parents an opportunity to have input on the direction of this new school."

At the moment, it's unclear as to whether existing schools will simply be moved into the building, or whether PS/IS 338 will be a new school in its own right. The DOE wouldn't answer these questions.

One local school that would like to relocate is PS 204. Their current building - a former synagogue on West 174th Street - doesn't meet students' needs, teachers and parents say.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. It's being held in the auditorium of Community School 232, at 1700 Macombs Rd, next door to the PS/IS 338 construction site. For information, call Gibson’s district office at (718) 538-2000.
