  • Neighborhood School Diversity Committee Meeting – February 11th – 8:30 am – Neighborhood School (121 East 3rd)

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the need for the NYC DOE to implement a Diversity based Admission Policy for District One schools and having a rally. At the prior meeting, we decided how we will go about securing help from other educators and parents outside of TNS to participate in a rally to persuade the Mayor and the School Chancellor that a Diversity based Admission Policy for District One school is good for all.
