The city Department of Education has scheduled public hearings this week for the three Queens high schools proposed for "phase-out" — meaning eventual closure, or as sites for new colocated schools.
The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. for the proposed closure of Business, Computer Applications & Entrepreneurship High School in Cambria Heights. The meeting will take place at the school at 207-01 116 Ave.
The public hearing for the proposed colocation of a new school in Newtown High School's campus will be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the school at 53-01 90 St. in Elmhurst.
On Thursday evening, a public hearing will be held on the proposed colocation of a new high school within Flushing High School's campus. The hearing will be held at the school at 35-01 Union St. That hearing will also start at 6 p.m.
Dmytro Fedkowskyj, Queens' representative on the Panel for Educational Policy and a staunch critic of the DOE closure process said he will propose a moratorium on school phase-outs and colocations at the March 11 PEP meeting at Brooklyn Technical High School.
An earlier version of this article listed Flushing and Newtown high schools as eyed for phase-outs along with Business, Computer Applications & Entrepreneurship High School. However, that is not the case. The two schools are instead being looked at as sites for new colocated schools. We regret the error.
