The Diversity Committee is ​pleased​ to announce that our proposed project, which was included on Council Member Landers Participatory Budgeting Ballot​, has received enough votes to get funded!! 

 

​The project will hire a temporary part-time outreach coordinator who will start in July 2018 and work with the three district wide schools in Council District 39​ (​PS 372, PS 133 and the Brooklyn New School)​. The coordinator will assist the schools t​o share best practices and work together to create a coordinated outreach plan that will increase economic and linguistic diversity at all three schools​.
 
The larger goal of this project is that it will serve as​ a citywide model to demonstrate that providing assistance to schools who are participating​ in the ​New York City DOE's D​iversity in A​dmissions P​rogram helps those schools achieve the program's goals​
