Tribeca and Lower Manhattan public schools zoned

Proposed Tribeca school zoning mapTribecaMonths of speculation, controversy, and debate ended last Friday as the District 2 Community Education Council voted 6-4 for "Option 2" as the temporary public school zoning for lower Mahhattan including: Tribeca, Battery Park City, The Financial District and Seaport area. Downtown Express reported that, "all Tribeca children west of Church St. will be zoned for P.S. 234. Children in east Tribeca and the Seaport will attend the Spruce Street School; the Financial District south of Liberty St. and Battery Park City south of Albany St. will attend P.S./I.S. 276; and north Battery Park City and Gateway Plaza will attend P.S. 89." The Tribeca Trib is running the map shown here as well as great coverage on the issues too. The plan redistributes and creates new school districts for PS 234, PS 89, PS 397 & PS 276. Unzoned PS 150 also serves the general community. Here's what the local media had to say:

The Tribeca Trib: Panel Chooses Zoning 'Option 2' for Downtown Schools

Downtown Express: Cheers & jeers as school Option 2 is picked

Broadsheet Daily: CB1's School Zoning Task Force endorses Option Two

reader comments:

This is really a good news for the small children who had been suffering a lot.. I personally think government should take a more effective step in solving such cases where the future of young generation is at stake.


BPM preschool is also a great option for their children.
