ARE ALL YOUR PARK SLOPE KIDS GOING TO BE GOING TO SHITTY SCHOOLS NOW?

ATTN ALL PARENTS AND REAL ESTATE AGENTS: Time to freak the hell out over the prospect of having your whole nabe rezoned!

As we all well know cause it's been a hot topic forevs, P.S 321 on 7th Avene and P.S 107 on 8th Avenue are two elementary schools that are busting at the seams. Apparently the Community Education Council for District 15, which controls the zoning in our neighborhood, is in a standoff with the Department Education over a potential proposal to shrink our school zones! Which means more kids will get shut out of these two allegedly awesome schools! Which means your 1 billion dollar brownstone purchase was all for naught!

The Education Department has not revealed which blocks would be rezoned, but in general, the proposal involves transferring the western end of P.S. 321’s zone, where Park Slope turns into Gowanus, to a new school to be opened on Eighth Street and Fourth Avenue. Some of P.S. 107’s southernmost blocks would be shifted to P.S. 10. The siblings of students already at the affected schools would probably be allowed to register at the same schools.

Oy. 

Let the battle royale begin!
