The article incorrectly states "STEM students in kindergarten, first and sixth grades will move to PS 17 in the 2014-15 school year." This is not true. The DOE proposal is not allowing anyone to move except into 6th grade when they graduate. (STEM is a K to 5)Jun 18, 2013
The DOE's plan is not for the current students at PS85 to move into the K-4 at PS17 as stated in the second paragraph above. It is a brand new school running in parallel and starting with a K-1 without anyone currently enrolled moving into it. It will essentially split the Queens citywide in half and the STEM citywide at PS85 is phasing out while both schools feed into the new 6th grade being created at IS126.May 9, 2013
