FAMILIES FOR EXCELLENT SCHOOLS JOINS BRONX ELECTED OFFICIALS, CLERGY LEADERS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS IN FIGHT TO PROTECT GIRLS PREP BRONX

Girls Prep Bronx fifth graders face being barred from their school if their co-location is overturned by courts or Department of Education

On Thursday, February 6th, Families for Excellent Schools will join leaders from across the Bronx in the fight to protect Girls Prep Bronx. Fifth graders at the co-located school may be barred from Girls Prep and left without a school next year if their co-location is reversed, either by lawsuit or action by the Department of Education. Parents, students, elected, community and clergy leaders will all join together to make clear the risk this proposal poses to the high quality education these students receive every day.
