BROOKLYN - Two Brooklyn schools have been added to New York's list of persistently dangerous schools.

The state Department of Education (DOE) placed both the Middle School for Academic and Social Excellence in Crown Heights and P.S. 12 in Brownsville on the list.

Schools are put on the list if they have at least two successive years of six or more serious incidents, such as homicides, robberies or sex offenses.

The DOE says that any institution identified as persistently dangerous must provide school choice to its students, meaning they can transfer to another school within the same district. The state also mandates specific steps the school will have to take to improve safety.
