Challenges Facing District 3 Schools 


A Simultaneous, Multi-Age 


by Regeneración Childcare Collective

District 3 is one of the most diverse school districts in NYC and one of the most segregated.  The District recently received an $11.3 million magnet grant to reduce “racial isolation.”

District 3 schools have also been subject to co-location of its public schools through the expansion of charter schools.

Please join us to learn more about Community Controlled Choice: an admissions policy and school assignment plan that addresses these issues and works to ensure that ALL of our public schools thrive.

Thursday, June 7th, 5:30–7 PM

PS 75 (735 West End Avenue at 96th Street)

Speakers include:

Michael Alves, Controlled Choice expert & consultant to school districts across the country; John C. Brittain, Professor of Law (University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clarke School of Law)

Lisa Donlan, President, CEC District One, NYC


Damon Hewitt, Director of the Education Practice, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
