Winning DOE’s Support for Proposal to Expand the Clinton School

Earlier this year, I sent a letter to the New York City Department of Education (DOE) supporting a proposal by the Clinton School for Writers and Artists’ School Leadership Team and Parent Association for the school to become a combined middle and high school, enrolling students in grades 6 through 12. Manhattan Community Board 5 (CB5) passed a resolution in support of this proposal back in April.I am pleased to report that the DOE has heeded our call and will be submitting this proposed expansion to the Panel for Educational Policy in the fall—in time to take effect when the Clinton School moves into its new home at 10 East 15th Street for the 2015-16 school year. I’d like to thank CB5, as well as Clinton School parents and the SLT for their advocacy.
