Teachers report to first staff meeting at newly approved charter school in Brooklyn

Twenty-five newly hired teachers reported to their first staff meeting Friday after the teachers' union got the final OK on running a charter school in Brooklyn.

The new elementary school will open in September inside I.S. 292 in East New York. At first the school will serve three kindergarten classes and first-grade. Eventually the school will be kindergarten through fifth-grade.

In May, the vote to approve the school was delayed because of concerns about the leadership structure. Instead of having a principal, there will be a school leader who will report to a 13-member board of directors.
