Mayor Ends Space-Sharing for Some N.Y.C. Charters
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced last week he is rescinding several existing agreements that allow charter schools to share space—or "co-locate"—in buildings with regular public schools. Nearly 700 charter students are expected to be affected.
During last year's election campaign, Mr. de Blasio repeatedly said that he did not support the co-location policies of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, and that he would review the proposals approved last fall by the outgoing administration.
Of the 49 proposals previously approved by Mr. Bloomberg, Mayor de Blasio's office has made decisions on 45 schools, deferring decisions on four of the proposals for schools opening in 2015-16. While the vast majority of the plans were approved to move forward, nine were withdrawn by the new administration.
