While I am concerned about the conditions mentioned in the report regarding the area

high schools, I am pleased that the New York State Department of Education/New York

City Department of Education Joint Intervention Team has recommended to keep the schools

open.  I intend to work with the DOE to ensure that the best education possible is provided

for the young students and their families.  It is time to move ahead and work together

to help these students achieve success.
