School Siting Task Force report and spreadsheets

Jan. 6, 2020

The School Siting Task Force, created by Local Law 168, met only twice with no input from parent members appointed by the DOE or City Council members.

It produced only a 1 1/2 page report, along with two spreadsheets, one a list of empty city-owned sites from the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (“DCAS List”) and another, more inclusive list of empty sites from the Department of Finance (“DOF List”).

We obtained the report and the spreadsheets via a Freedom of Information request from the Council.

Of the 29,509 sites on these spreadsheets, the School Construction Authority said they would investigate two locations as possible sites for new schools, one in D21 and the other in D23.

The SCA has not yet analyzed over 75% (22,000+) of the locations because they are not owned by the City. The SCA claims that these sites will be looked at “in the near future.”

We are in the process of summarizing some of the many ambiguities and discrepancies in the Task Force report and the spreadsheets.
