Metropolis Corridor on Thursday introduced plans to increase its pre-Okay schooling program for three-yr-olds in six new neighborhoods over the subsequent three years.
The free, full-day three-Okay enlargement is available in three phases, starting with District four, in East Harlem and District 7, in Queens, for the 2018-2019 faculty yr.
In fall 2019, this system will come to District 9 in The Bronx and District 31 in Staten Island, adopted by District 19 in East New York and District 29 in southeast Queens in September 2020.
This system is presently in its first yr in District 7 within the South Bronx and District 23 in Brownsville, at an working value of $36 million. As soon as all eight districts are operating at full capability in 2022, the working value will probably be $one hundred eighty million yearly, officers stated.
Mayor de Blasio stated the plan requires elevated federal and state funds to broaden the plan to the remaining faculty districts in 2021.
