Public Workshops are open to all D15 community members. Parents, students, teachers, and administrators are all encouraged to attend. Public Workshop #1 will provide a chance for community members to learn more about the planning and engagement process, to provide feedback on the middle school admissions process, and to share their goals and priorities for school diversity – from Sunset Park to Park Slope to Red Hook and neighborhoods in between!

Public Workshop #1: Introduction

Date: Tuesday, February 13th

Time: 6:30 - 8:30pm (Doors open at 6:00pm)

Location: Sunset Park High School


The New York City Department of Education (DOE) is committed to supporting schools and programs that reflect New York City’s diversity.

On June 6, 2017, we shared Equity and Excellence for All: Diversity in New York City Public Schools. As part of this citywide school diversity plan, we are providing more formal support to community school districts in the development of district-level diversity plans.

Our goal is to create a D15 Diversity Plan that will promote diversity in District 15’s middle schools and also be a model for district-level work across New York City. To best meet this goal, we are engaging community members, using their input to help shape the plan, and making data related to school diversity more transparent.

We are committed to creating a D15 Diversity Plan shaped by the values and priorities of District 15’s diverse community and to developing specific and actionable recommendations. The planning process will directly engage community members, use their input as the basis for recommendations, and make data related to school diversity more transparent.

The planning process will engage a wide range of topics related to school diversity which may include; race, equity, admissions policies, culturally responsive curricula, overcrowding, school quality, transportation, resource allocation, safety, restorative justice and staff representation, among others. Community input will guide which specific areas of diversity our research, discussion, and meetings will focus on.
