BROOKLYN - The Department of Education (DOE) has withdrawn its plans to co-locate a charter school with another charter school, after months of fighting between the school and the DOE.

The DOE had originally approved the plan to co-locate the Success Academy Charter School in Brownsville Academy’s building. The move would have taken up to 22 classrooms, forcing Brownsville Academy to put up to 30 students in each of its remaining classrooms.

In a statement, the DOE said, "While we believe co-locating the two schools was the best option at the time, another better option became available. As a result, we decided to propose a new location."
