G&T Kindergarten Update

The Administration & PTA of PS/IS 217 has decided to go forward with the planned G&T Kindergarten class for the 2010/11 School Year – regardless of DOE’s stated minimum requirements. What does this mean? It means that there WILL BE a Kindergarten G&T class in place, and that you can still put your child’s name on the list to attend – regardless of whether you’ve already registered at another school. 

IF YOU WANT TO ENROLL YOUR CHILD AT PS/IS 217: 

1) Immediately contact Parent Coordinator Lauraine Rademaker at lrademaker@schools.nyc.gov (or call 347-563-5165) to express your intent and to fill out a ‘Placement Exception Request Form”, which is a required document in this process.

2) Email Kim Cobb (kcobb@schools.nyc.gov), and Michael Greenberg (mgreenberg5@schools.nyc.gov), in the Enrollment Office of the DOE expressing your intention (please cc: Nikki Leopold at nikkipta@gmail.com).

Per the DOE’s Elizabeth Rose, Director of Portfolio Planning: “Families will not give up their current seat unless and until we make a decision to open the class at 217.” 

THEREFORE, FOR YOUR OWN PIECE OF MIND, WE WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO REGISTER TO THE SCHOOL YOU WERE MATCHED WITH (IF APPICABLE), UNTIL REGISTRATION AT PS/IS 217 OPENS.  We anticipate this to happen sometime after Friday, June 24th.

DON’T DELAY! CONTACT PS/IS 217 & THE DOE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD’S NAME FOR THE G&T KINDERGARTEN CLASS!!

If you have any questions or require any additional information, please contact Nikki Leopold, PS/IS 217 PTA President, at nikkipta@gmail.com
