Parents protest possible closure of Bronx school
Parents are taking action after finding out earlier this week that their children's school may be closing at the end of the school year.
They made sure their voices were heard as they rallied together on Friday, just before the winter break.
P.S. 92 is one of five Bronx schools that are scheduled to either close or merge by the end of the school year. The Department of Education announced Monday that the schools in the Renewal School Program that continue to under-perform would be closed.
"This closure was proposed in the best interest of students," the department tells News 12 in a statement. "And the decision was made in consultation with the superintendent after carefully reviewing the school's state test scores, attendance, enrollment, classroom instruction, leadership and the overall trajectory."
But parents say they are not going down without a fight. They have created a petition in hopes the Department of Education will reconsider.
