    52 Chambers Street New York, NY 10007

    March 1, 2024

    Dear Elijah Stroud Middle School Families:

     

    I am writing to share that the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) is proposing to re-site Elijah Stroud Middle School (17K353), referred to as Elijah Stroud, from building K316 to building K022 and co-locate it with Brooklyn Arts and Science Elementary School (17K705), referred to as Brooklyn Arts, in building K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year. A co-location means that two or more school organizations are located in the same building and may share common spaces, such as auditoriums, gymnasiums, libraries, and cafeterias.

    Building K022 is located at 443 Saint Marks Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238, in Community School District 17, referred to as District 17, approximately 0.2 miles away from K316.

     

    As you may know, Elijah Stroud is a zoned district middle school currently serving students in grades 6-8 in K316, located at 750 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238, also in District 17. Elijah Stroud is currently co- located in K316 with P.S. 316 Elijah Stroud (17K316), referred to as P.S. 316, an existing zoned elementary school currently serving students in grades through 5 and offering a pre-Kindergarten (pre-K) program in K316.

    Brooklyn Arts is a zoned district elementary school currently serving students in grades K-5 and offering 3-K and pre-K programs in K022. K022 also houses Explore Exceed Charter School (84K333), referred to as Explore Exceed, a charter school currently serving students in grades K-5 in K022. Explore Exceed has made the decision to close and will no longer serve students in K022 after the conclusion of the 2023-2024 school year.

    What is the NYCDOE proposing?

     

    The NYCDOE is proposing a re-siting. A re-siting means that part or all of a school will be moved to a different building than the building in which the school or part of the school has been located.

    The NYCDOE is proposing to re-site Elijah Stroud from K316 to K022 and to co-locate it with Brooklyn Arts in K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year to address space challenges in K316 and to support enrollment growth for Elijah Stroud and P.S. 316. K022 is a newer facility than K316, with amenities better suited for a middle school that can support Elijah Stroud’s programming and recruitment, including a full gymnasium and auditorium, which K316 does not have. If this proposal is approved, this re-siting will also provide Elijah Stroud with additional space as the school continues to explore strategies to boost enrollment and attract more students.

     

    If this proposal is approved, Elijah Stroud will no longer serve students in K316 following the current 2023-2024 school year and will instead be re-sited and co-located with Brooklyn Arts and serve students in building K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year.

    This proposal must be voted on and approved by the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP) prior to implementation.

     

    If this proposal is approved by the PEP, what does this mean for my child(ren)?

     

    • If this proposal is approved, Elijah Stroud will no longer serve students in K316 following the current 2023-2024 school year and will instead be re-sited and co-located with Brooklyn Arts and serve students in building K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year.

     

     

     

    • If this proposal is approved, current and future Elijah Stroud students, with the exception of those articulating to high school or continuing on to different middle school options, will attend school in K022 instead of K316.

     

    • If this proposal is approved, Elijah Stroud will continue to serve the same middle school zone, even though its new location will be one block outside the geographic boundaries of the zone. Given the proximity of K022 to K316 and to the Elijah Stroud zone, this re-siting is not expected to impact students’ ability to access Elijah Stroud.

     

    • K022 will offer improved facilities and additional capacity to Elijah Stroud to support efforts to add programming and grow the school’s enrollment.
    • As mentioned above, Explore Exceed will no longer serve students in K022 after the conclusion of the 2023-2024 school year. In the 2024-2025 school year, K022 is projected to have a total building enrollment of 291-396 students, yielding a building utilization rate of approximately 52-71%. Therefore, K022 will be under-utilized, meaning it will have the capacity to accommodate additional students.
    • Since K022 is only 2 miles from K316, it is anticipated that most current Elijah Stroud students will not experience a significant impact when commuting to and from school. This proposal, if approved, may impact transportation eligibility for some current Elijah Stroud students.

     

    • This proposal, if approved, is not expected to impact the current or future instructional or extracurricular programming or admissions at Elijah Stroud, although students will be served at K022 rather than

    Where can I learn more about this proposal?

     

    This letter serves as notice that the Educational Impact Statement (EIS) for this proposal has been posted on the NYCDOE’s website at: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/about-us/leadership/panel-for-education-policy/2023-2024- pages/april-17-2024-school-utilization-proposals

     

    We encourage you to visit that website as we will update it with important dates and new information as it becomes available. Copies of the EIS for this proposal are also available in the main offices of Elijah Stroud, P.S. 316, and Brooklyn Arts.

     

    How can I provide feedback?

    This proposal must be voted on and approved by the PEP prior to implementation. We anticipate that the PEP will vote on this proposal on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, at 6 p.m. at the John Jay Educational Campus located at 237 7th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215.

     

    In advance of the PEP vote, a Joint Public Hearing for this proposal will be held via teleconference on Wednesday, April 3, 2024. All community members will have the opportunity to share feedback about this proposal at the Joint Public Hearing, which will begin at 6 p.m.

     

    Feedback on the proposal can also be directed at any time to the NYCDOE’s Office of District Planning by phone at 212-374-0208 or via e-mail at D17proposals@schools.nyc.gov.

     

     
       

     

     

     

     

    The official Notices of Proposal and Joint Public Hearing are attached. Sincerely,

     

    Shenean Lindsay

  • ***IMPORTANT*** RESITTING JPH NOTICE

    Notice of Joint Public Hearing

     

    The Proposed Re-siting of Elijah Stroud Middle School (17K353) from Building K316 to Building K022 and Co-location with Brooklyn Arts and Science Elementary School (17K705) in the 2024-2025 School Year

    A Joint Public Hearing will be held to provide the public with an opportunity to learn more about the above-referenced proposal and to present comments or concerns on the proposal. The date, time, and location of the hearing are as follows:

    Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2024

    Time: 6 p.m.

    Where: Teleconference, https://learndoe.org/districtplanning/.

     

    This Joint Public Hearing will be an opportunity to learn more about potential changes to building K022 and K316 and share feedback.

     

    The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) is proposing to re-site Elijah Stroud Middle School (17K353), referred to as Elijah Stroud, from building K316 to building K022 and co-locate it with Brooklyn Arts and Science Elementary School (17K705), referred to as Brooklyn Arts, in building K022 in the 2024-2025 school year. A co-location means that two or more school organizations are located in the same building and may share common spaces, such as auditoriums, gymnasiums, libraries, and cafeterias.

     

    Elijah Stroud is a zoned district middle school currently serving students in grades 6-8 in K316, located at 750 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238 in Community School District 17, referred to as District 17.

    Elijah Stroud is currently co-located in K316 with P.S. 316 Elijah Stroud (17K316), referred to as P.S. 316, an existing zoned elementary school currently serving students in grades K-5 and offering a pre- Kindergarten (pre-K) program in K316.

     

    Brooklyn Arts is a zoned district elementary school currently serving students in grades K-5 and offering a 3-K and pre-K program in K022. K022 also houses Explore Exceed Charter School (84K333), referred to as Explore Exceed, a charter school currently serving students in grades K-5 in K022. Explore Exceed has made the decision to close and will no longer serve students in K022 after the conclusion of the 2023- 2024 school year. Building K022 is located at 443 Saint Marks Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238, also in District 17, approximately 0.2 miles away from K316.

     

    If this proposal is approved by the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP), Elijah Stroud will be re-sited and co-located with Brooklyn Arts in K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year. The NYCDOE is proposing to re-site Elijah Stroud from K316 to K022 to address space challenges in K316 and to support enrollment growth for Elijah Stroud and P.S. 316. K022 is a newer facility than K316, with amenities

    better suited for a middle school that can support Elijah Stroud’s programming and recruitment, including a full gymnasium and auditorium, which K316 does not have. If this proposal is approved, this re-siting will also provide Elijah Stroud with additional space as the school continues to explore strategies to boost enrollment and attract more students.

     

    In addition, P.S. 316, which is currently co-located with Elijah Stroud in building K316, is a high-demand elementary school option that has more applicants than available seats. Therefore, re-siting Elijah Stroud would give P.S. 316 the opportunity to grow and serve additional students as P.S. 316 would remain the only school housed in K316.

     

    If this proposal is approved by the PEP, Elijah Stroud will no longer serve students in K316 following the current 2023-2024 school year and will instead be re-sited and co-located with Brooklyn Arts and serve students in building K022 beginning in the 2024-2025 school year.

     

    Based on conversations with the community, if this proposal is approved, the NYCDOE anticipates that Elijah Stroud may pursue a name change. School naming and re-naming is subject to Chancellor’s Regulation A-860. For more information about this process and Chancellor’s Regulation A-860, please visit the NYCDOE website at: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/about-us/policies/chancellors- regulations/volume-a-regulations/3.

     

    For further information about this proposal, please see the Educational Impact Statement, which is available in the main offices of Elijah Stroud, Brooklyn Arts, and P.S. 316 as well as on the PEP website at: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/get-involved/families/panel-for-education-policy/2023-2024-pages/april- 17-2024-school-utilization-proposals.

  • PARENT THANK YOU LETTER

    September 8, 2023

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredibly smooth first two days of school. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome your child back to the classroom and embark on this new academic year together.

    The start of a new school year is always filled with excitement and a bit of anticipation, both for students and for teachers. I am thrilled to report that your child's enthusiasm for learning shone brightly today, and it was evident that they are well prepared and eager to engage in the educational journey that lies ahead.

    I want to extend my appreciation for your proactive involvement in ensuring that your child was ready for school. From ensuring they had their supplies and uniforms to encouraging them to be punctual, your support played a significant role in making our first two days smooth and successful.

    It is evident that a supportive and caring home environment is a key factor in a student's success, and I feel fortunate to have such dedicated parents like you collaborating with us in your child's education.

    As we move forward in this academic year, please know that I am committed to providing your child with the best possible learning experience. I will do my utmost to nurture their curiosity, encourage their growth, and create a safe and inclusive classroom environment where they can thrive.

    If you ever have any questions, concerns, or suggestions throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Open communication between home and school is essential, and I value your input immensely.

    Once again, thank you for entrusting your child's education to me and for making our first day of school so delightful. I am looking forward to a year filled with growth, learning, and memorable experiences.

     

    In gratitude always,

    Olga Maluf

    Principal
