The list also comes as one school, PS 139 in Ditmas Park, had to be shut down for at least 24 hours after a second COVID case was confirmed among educational staff in a four-day span. That is the same school where teachers staged a protest on Monday, placing desks outside the building.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday that despite the ongoing pandemic, everything remains on course for the nation's largest shool district to open come Monday with in-person and remote learning. The mayor did admit that it is possible the city will have to find more teachers by then — while the principals union said they're short thousands of educators.
"We will compare notes, if there are still some gaps we will take another step," said de Blasio.
The city is still scrambling to make fixes at other schools throughout the city. At P.S. 209 in the Bronx, teachers stayed outside on Tuesday because the ventilation system isn't working.
"There has been no solution yet, so we decided today to start working outside in hopes this will be fixed before our students come on Monday," said teacher Alyson Bamford.
However, there is no fix coming for another school deemed to not be ready for students. The Martin Luther King Junior Educational Complex on the Upper West Side, a huge school with 6,000 students, won't be opening come Monday.
The students at the Maxine Greene High School for Imaginative Inquiry, the High School for Law, Advocacy and Community Justice, and Manhattan/Hunter Science High School can opt either to learn remotely or go to an alternate site downtown at the Borough of Manhattan Community College — a location that would add likely around a half hour both ways for students commuting from places like the Bronx.
Other schools that are part of the complex — including Grades 9-12 of the Special Music School, the Urban Assembly School for Media Studies, and the High School of Arts and Technology — will use Success Academy space in other DOE buildings.
"We've been clear from the beginning that if a building or classroom was not safe, we would not use it. While the vast majority of our classrooms and nearly all of our buildings will be ready to serve children and staff on September 21, we have found alternative space for the schools located on the Martin Luther King, Jr. campus," the city's DOE said in a statement. "All schools will be accommodated and we have found suitable, safe and convenient options for these school communities to help start their year strong."
