Students and parents of The Staten Island Community Charter School have joined their principal in her fight to keep the school open — after it was given a year to bring test scores up, which was achieved.
On Tuesday night, the Department of Education released this statement:
"Its performance continues to lag behind other schools on Staten Island. We are working with students and their families to ensure they have a high quality school option for next year."
Principal Dr. Nicole Garcia talked about the fate of the school and what she did to increase test score results among students.
