Chancellor Klein Announces Middle School Fairs

Press Release from the New York City Department of Education:

Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein today announced the schedule for middle school fairs that will be held in the 22 school districts Citywide that offer middle school choice to students. The fairs begin on January 15, 2008, and are part of the first Citywide middle school admissions calendar, which replaces the various calendars used by individual districts in previous years. Middle school applications will be available at elementary schools beginning the week of January 21 and are due February 6. Families will be notified of placements in May. Although this new calendar applies Citywide, admissions criteria and placement decisions will continue as they have in previous years. Specific information about middle school options in each district, including selection criteria and eligibility rules, are available in the middle school directories that elementary school students will receive before the fairs.
