Postponed | Curious About Plans to Rehab the iSchool Building?

For years there has been talk about how and when to renovate the structure we share with Chelsea. Now, Jennifer Maldanado, executive director of the New York City Educational Construction Fund (ECF)*, has asked to speak to iSchool parents about the progress that is being made on this front. Join us for our November PA meeting to learn more.

*Here’s more info about ECF:

The mission of the New York City Educational Construction Fund (ECF) is to build safe, secure learning environments. ECF encourages comprehensive neighborhood development by constructing mixed-use real estate projects which feature new school facilities. ECF increases the capacity of the New York City Department of Education to construct new school facilities, thereby increasing the number of seats for the entire school system. ECF is a public benefit corporation that was created by the New York State Legislature in 1967 and since that time has constructed projects that added over 18,000 school seats, 4,500 units of housing and 1.2 million square feet of office space in New York City.
