Kindergarten Admissions for the 2017-18 School Year

**WAITLIST INFORMATION UPDATED JUNE 2017**  We unfortunately have not had any movement on our wait list, it seems as if most families who were offered a placement at PS 29 for the 2017-18 school year have accepted their offer. We wish we had better news for our families.

Kindergarten Summer Applications 

Families who have moved to the PS 29 zone or are planning to move to the PS 29 zone and missed the regular application period will be added to a waitlist. Please fill out this form to be added to the wait list. https://goo.gl/forms/CnGI10yk2mnhjdds2

Since we have a long and unprecedented wait list at PS 29, we anticipate there will be a high number of students that will not receive a placement at PS 29 and will be placed at another school in district 15.  These families will be notified of the school where their child will be placed in September.  As of June 12th we have a waitlist of about 40 zoned students so your child’s name would be added to that list based on our school’s priorities :

Zoned Schools Admissions Priorities

We make offers to zoned schools in this order:

Zoning:

Please note that PS 29 is a zoned school and only takes zoned students. If you are not sure whether you live in our zone, the quickest way to find out is to visit this link http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/FindZonedSchool.htm You can also call the school at 718-330-9277

We are extremely conscientious and strict about address verification. Your zoned school is where your child’s primary residence is. It is not an apartment you own or rent but do not reside in at the time of application/registration or your place of employment. It is not a temporary apartment you have rented for a few months with the intention of registering your child at PS 29. These are all prohibited by Chancellor’s Regulations. We are scrupulous in address verification due to the fact that over the last few years we have had many more applicants than seats available and we must retain the integrity of the process for legitimately zoned families. We retain the right to do address investigations and abide by the results of those investigations.

Last year, this school only admitted zoned students.

Here is an image taken from the DOE’s website that shows the rough limits of PS 29’s zoning.
