An Update about G&T Program at the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S 217)

To answer some of the questions we received from interested parents, a quote from an email update from the Council member Lappin's office regarding the status of the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S. 217) G&T Program :

"They [The DOE - Department of Education] have promised us that they remain committed to the program and will include it among the choices next year.  They will also work to devise strategies to increase enrollment at the program.  This year’s kindergarten class will be able to continue in the G&T program in first grade next year (and, in fact, is expected to grow by three students).  <...> Even with the hopeful note about the DOE remaining committed to the program in the future, <...> transportation from off the Island is likely going to be a determinative factor in the program’s success."

More information will be available at the G&T Program meeting this Friday, June 11th at 9 am in the Roosevelt Island School auditorium (2nd floor).
