P.S. 58 Rezoning Off the Table

By Lisa M. Collins

For now, it seems the proposed rezoning of P.S. 58 is off the table.

Jim Devor, president of the Community Education Council for District 15, told South Brooklyn Post back in January that he asked the city Department of Education to consider a rezoning of P.S. 58 and P.S. 32 to ease crowding at 58, and increase diversity at little P.S. 32, on Hoyt between Union and President streets (read more here). Devor’s idea was to cut off P.S. 58 at Smith Street.

But the city DOE has “declined” to consider any rezoning of P.S. 58 Elementary School, Devor said on Thursday.

“No rezoning affecting PS 58 will be on the agenda at any of our meetings this school year,” Devor said.

The Community Education Council for District 15 is meeting on Wednesday, May 29, at 7 p.m., and considering a resolution regarding the admissions policy of PS 146 (Brooklyn New School), that would “demand” that District 15 students have “exclusive admissions priority,” at the school, which takes kids from across Brooklyn, Devor says.
