Supporting a Proposal to Expand the Clinton School

The Clinton School for Writers and Artists (the Clinton School), which is temporarily located at 425 West 33 Street, will be moving into 10 East 15 Street—a building currently being prepared to house a middle and high school—for the 2014-15 school year. On April 16, I sent a letter to Alex Shub, Executive Director of New School Development at the New York City Department of Education, supporting a Letter of Intent submitted by the Clinton School Principal to expand what is currently a middle school to a middle and high school in its new home. The proposal, which is backed by the school’s Parent Association, would ensure that the new building houses one unified school with a coherent curriculum, under the direction of one principal. Please see my letter below.
