Promises not Politics: NYC DOE Must Make Good On Promise Not To Overcrowd PS11

The DOE promised PS11 it would move the middle school from the building by Fall 2010 — DON'T LET THEM FAIL TO MAKE GOOD ON THAT PROMISE.
In good faith, PS 11 accepted an additional K class as well as a 10% increase in enrolment over all grades to help ease area overcrowding. To make room, PS11 covered its Library shelves, dismantled its Music room, and began using storage closets as cluster spaces.
If the DOE fails to move the middle school by Fall 2010, PS11 stands to lose its small class sizes (and have up to 34 kids per classroom), its Pre-K, its G&T for K, its Library, Art, Music and Computer rooms, and up to $1,000,000 in sacrificed funding for 2010-11 alone.
We, the undersigned, call on the NYC DOE to make good on its promise to TITLE 1 PS11 to move the middle school from 320 West 21st Street by Fall 2010.
Without this time-sensitive move, PS11 stands to lose advancements in student achievement and up to $1,000,000 in funding for 2010-11 alone.
