P.S. 150 Principal Jenny Bonnet sent a letter to parents informing them their children's school would be moving from its Tribeca location to Chelsea after one more year in its current spot. Bonnet said the Department of Education and the school would work together to make this transition as smooth as possible, including using school buses when necessary.
Bonnet provided a number of reasons for the move, including the decreased viability of a small school.
Parents were shocked and outraged by the announcement, particularly the decision-making process behind it, and vowed to fight the school's move.
The City's Panel on Education Policy will vote on the issue in mid-June, though DOE proposals typically pass the panel.
