SHSAT UPDATE
NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat introduced Bill S-1787 to “Authorize[s] the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York to establish standards for admission to special high schools” (http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S1787-2015

(The special high schools include: Stuyvesant,Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Staten Island Tech, Queens HS for the Sciences at York College, HS for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, HS for American Studies at Lehman college, Brooklyn Latin, Laguardia HS and all additional schools that the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York designates as special high schools)

Many Stuy parents attended the Dec 11 rally at City Hall to oppose the City Council Resolution to support the NYS bills to change the Specialized High Schools admissions policy from the current single, objective test admissions criterion to multiple, including subjective and non-academic, criteria. Many Stuy parents also testified at City Hall, signed petitions, and sent emails to legislators. Our voices make a difference! The resolution in the NYC Council may or may not come up for a vote. There will be more actions we can take as developments occur.

    TICKETS: BECAUSE OF NEW AND EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES, we have extended the early-bird special for another week. Through March 7, you can still get tickets for $70 per seat (table for 10 for $650.) The PA has secured an exciting mentorship opportunity, which has made been possible by the Zheng family, but you must attend the Spring Feast to take advantage of it. Ten MDs, Directors and VPs from a major investment bank will hold one-on-one, private sessions with Stuy kids to discuss how to succeed on Wall Street. The sessions will take place at Stuy starting at the beginning of May. The sign-up, which will take place at the Spring Feast, is free, but is limited to 20 kids. Other mentoring sessions (in science and architecture, among others) will be offered at the silent auction to be held that night. If you miss the Spring Feast, you will miss these mentoring possibilities! Buy your tickets now. We are trying to organize tables around various interests, so if you want to sit with the club or team your child is involved with, let them know and we will organize the seating. If you want to make new friends, we will put you with like-minded people. CASH DONATIONS: The PA has received a matching donation of up to $2,500 from the Zheng family! This means that every dollar you contribute is worth two dollars. The matching donation will only be made if and to the extent the PA receives cash donations from you.

AUCTION DONATIONS: Some recent donations for the auction: Four Disney One-Day Park Hopper passes Tickets to a Mets game Tickets to the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival Henri Bendel "Blocked Carryall" Handbag SAT Common App Essay Package Please keep them coming!
