Five other schools will have middle school grades eliminated

From The New York Times: The New York City Panel for Educational Policy has voted to close 18 schools and eliminate the middle school grades at five others, citing poor performance. The panel determined that the schools’ test scores, graduation rates and leadership failings were too severe to merit keeping them open. The schools range from the General D. Chappie James Elementary School that opened in 2008 to Public School 19 Roberto Clemente, opened in 1910.
