Last week, we were notified by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) that our school, Brooklyn Collaborative Studies, has been designated a Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school. This means that according to State criteria, our school has not performed as well as other schools in New York State on the MS state examinations in ELA and Math. As a reminder, we will be holding a meeting on Fri 2/1 from 8:15am-9am in Rm 411 to answer any questions you might have. There will also be a representative from our Superintendent’s Office available to answer your questions. Our Superintendent Kathy Rehfield-Pelles and her team have been extremely supportive of our school over many years, and we appreciate their allyship. In Letter to BCS Parents about our CSI designaton from NYSED, we want to make sure that you have basic information about the state designation and that you hear directly from us as school leaders about our action steps and the other measures of success we monitor at Brooklyn Collaborative.
