PS 372, 146 & 133 have a school diversity project on the participatory budgeting (PB) ballot in Brad Lander’s CD39!
VOTING is April 7-15. Come out to vote for great community projects and spread the word about the PB process!! Please vote for our project so we can get funded. Please vote RIGHT NOW online. Kids age 11 and older can vote, too!
WHAT: Our proposal is to Hire a Diversity Outreach Coordinator to work with three local un-zoned elementary schools (PS 372, 146 and 133), which are part of the NYC Department of Employment’s (DOE) Diversity in Admissions Program. The Outreach Coordinator will assist these three schools to develop an effective outreach plan that will help them achieve Diversity in Admissions goals. The project will also serve as a citywide model of how targeted support can help schools to achieve real and sustainable integration.
The Diversity in Admissions Program allows schools to make modifications to their admissions process with the goal of eliminating linguistic, cultural and economic segregation to better reflect the diversity of the areas from which they draw students.
Look for our project in the Education section under Expense Projects. Here’s what it looks like on the ballot:
Outreach Plan For Elementary School Diversity
