Charter schools get new life

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The city announced Saturday that it had finalized agreements for space for three charter schools that will enable them to move forward for the coming school year.

Alternative space for Harlem Success Academy 4, Success Academy Jamaica, and Success Academy City Hall was secured in three former Catholic school buildings that meet the necessary requirements and standards for occupancy by students.

The new locations replace co-location proposals previously halted by the Department of Education due to clear and consistent criteria established to ensure high-quality learning opportunities for all students. The resolution settles legal actions related to those co-locations.

Under the agreement, the city will provide for leasing and renovations to ensure a high-quality school environment for students. Each site has program space commensurate with that of the original co-location proposals.

"It doesn't matter whether a child attends a district school, a charter school, or a parochial school?these are all our kids. We pledged to parents we would have a safe, high-quality environment for these students, and this outcome delivers on that promise. I am grateful to Deputy Mayor Buery and Schools Chancellor Fariña for all their work reaching this solution," said First Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris.

The three schools will be sited at the following locations for the coming school year:

Annunciation School, 461 West 131st Street, Manhattan

St. Pius X School, 147-65 249th Street, Rosedale, Queens

Mother Cabrini High School, 701 Fort Washington Avenue, Manhattan

The administration will now move forward on final lease negotiations at each site.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad. For example, the C train breaks down most often, not surprising since the line has 50-year-old cars. But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
