Foreign Language Academy slated to close
Education officials announced Thursday that the Foreign Language Academy of Global Studies may be closing.
Department of Education officials say they plan to close the school in a few months due to persistently low enrollment and performance issues. The school currently has 101 students in grades 9-12, making it the fourth-lowest enrolled high school in the city.
In addition, officials say only 2 percent of graduating students are ready for college. Parents will receive a letter about the proposed closure.
The plan still needs to be approved in April by the Panel for Education Policy. The DOE will also host a public hearing to hear any concerns that residents may have.
