Undeterred by the gathering blizzard, more than 40 University Heights Secondary School students rallied on Thursday, Feb. 25 to protest plans to move their school to the South Bronx High School campus in Morrisania.
Tonight, at a Department of Education public hearing at Bronx Community College (where the school is currently housed), students and parents will state their case to DOE officials. The hearing starts at 6 p.m. There's another one on Thursday, this time at the South Bronx High School campus. Details here.
The Panel for Educational Policy will decide on March 23 whether or not to approve the relocation.
