The rezoning of Park Slope schools, designed to ease overcrowding at popular P.S. 321 and P.S. 107, could have an unexpected effect on Park Slope school P.S. 10. The magnet school for math, science and technology, which was in the news for a parent-led flashmob over the summer, might have to cut its pre-K program to squeeze in all the new kids the rezoning will send their way, reported The New York Daily News. (The rezoning passed last week.) Even though the number of kindergarteners coming into P.S. 10 will grow, the situation will be saved by cutting out-of-zone kindergarteners from 46 percent to 30 percent or less, according to Department of Education officials. P.S. 10’s principal is also thinking of closing the music and art rooms to make more space for out-of-zone siblings who want to attend the school.
