Crown Heights Public School Among 17 to be Closed

The NYC Department of Education is shuttering 17 public schools throughout the city after a “rigorous review of academic performance” for the DOE. Among the schools to be closed is P.S. 167 on Eastern Parkway and Schenectady Avenue.

The New York City Department of Education announced plans Monday to close or phase out 17 schools.

The department said all the schools are low-performing, and the decision to close them or phase them out came “after a rigorous review of academic performance.”

“We’ve listened to the community and provided comprehensive support services to these schools based on their needs,” schools Deputy Chancellor Marc Sternberg said in a news release. “Ultimately, we know we can better serve our students and families with new options and a new start.”
