More helpful advice from a parent

Emily,The only information I can share with you is that my son is at MS 447 where they placed the Khalil Gibran school. There are now 3 schools in that buiding. There was plenty of space for Gibran. Many school buildings have 2 or more schools and they seem to be working. In your negotiations around this, if the DOE makes any promises (e.g., we'll renovate your auditorium or your cafeteria in exchange for this...) get it in writing! and stay on top of them.Good luck Beth G.
