Hello, my name is _______________ and I am a parent at PS 9 in Brooklyn.

On February 3rd, the Panel for Educational Policy will vote on whether or not to close MS 571 and co-locate Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School into our building at 80 Underhill Avenue. The Department of Education proposal is filled with critical inaccuracies and errors. If approved, it will severely harm the learning environment of PS 9 students as well as stunt the progress of a thriving community school.

You can find a list of the major flaws on the PS 9 blog at

(Use with DOE and PEP)Please vote against the co-location plan on February 3rd. Thank you.

(For Elected Officials) Please ask the panel to vote against the co-location on February 3rd. Thank you
