On Tuesday, June 15, 2021, CEC15 held Special Session to vote on the rezoning proposal for Subzone 3 of District 15. CEC15 members voted unanimously to approve the Rezoning of 7 elementary schools in Subzone 3: PS 15, PS 29, PS 32, PS 58, PS 261 and PS 676 – in line with the PAR Team’s recommendations.
As a PAR Team we are glad we’ve reached this moment and we remain engaged in the work. We are each committed community members who will continue to work – collectively and individually – towards the goals of our project. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with our communities, our schools, the DOE, D15, and the CEC on the implementation of the rezoning and our recommendations.
We thank everyone who has supported us and collaborated with us along the way so far!!!
The DOE and PS 676 have posted a proposal for the grade reconfiguration of PS 676 to slowly transform into a Middle School over the next several years.
As all this was in process, we hosted a Red Hook community meeting to hear from the Red Hook school leaders and community members about the vision for Red Hook. The proposal is responsive to community vision, needs, and desires. The PAR Team is excited for the possibilities and opportunities for Red Hook and beyond.
Tune in to the Dec 15th CEC Meeting for an update from the PAR Team and the DOE’s Office of District Planning.

Since schools re-opened for hybrid instruction on Sept 29th, we’ve been very busy with outreach – at schools, give-aways, in parks and playgrounds, at PTA mtgs, and more. We’ve continued to collect surveys and have conversations with community members. We’ll be providing a brief update on our recent work at the October 27th CEC meeting. And, we look forward to sharing even more at the Nov CEC.
If you haven’t taken our surveyyet – please do! And, help us spread the word within your school community.
The D15 PAR Project is busy conducting community conversations and distributing the D15 PAR Project Survey. If you haven’t had a chance to participate in the survey yet – we warmly invite you to do so!
