DNAinfo reports that the Department of Education proposed rezoning two neighborhood middle schools — I.S. 145 and I.S 230 — to help alleviate overcrowding in Jackson Heights. According to DNAinfo, “The boundaries for I.S. 230 would expand by about 10 blocks along Roosevelt Avenue, from 83rd Street to 92nd Street. The new territory, which would shrink the zone for I.S. 145, would be served by an annex for I.S. 230 that is under construction in the neighborhood.” The annex is expected to open next September, which is when the rezoning is also supposed to take place. Both middle schools are currently over 100 percent capacity; parents have complained about overcrowding for years. The DOE will hold a public meeting on the matter Monday, January 13th, 6pm at I.S 145, 33-34 80th Street.
