The NYC DOE recently issued notices regarding the proposed split of PS8’s middle school and lower school. Copies of the full proposals of the truncation of the current PS8 middle school and the creation of a new middle school are available in the main office of both buildings.
Please read this letter from the NYC DOE to all PS8/MS8 families. An Educational Impact Statement (EIS) is also available for review. Copies of the EIS are available in the main office at both buildings; please see Keisha Worrell at PS8 and Dawn Bethel at MS8. Please note: K580 refers to the George Westinghouse Campus Building.
There was a Community Meeting on October 30, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at the George Westinghouse Campus.
There will be two Joint Public Hearings in November:
- November 19, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at The George Westinghouse Campus, located at 105 Tech Place, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
- November 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at PS8, located at 37 Hicks Street, Brooklyn NY 11201.
Please read the Joint Public Hearing Notice here.
Both proposals must be voted on and approved by the Panel on Education Policy (PEP) prior to implementation. We anticipate that the PEP will vote on several proposals, including these two, on November 28, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Long Island City High School, located at 14-30 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11106.
