Success/Brandeis co-location comments due BY NOON TODAY

This just in. We know the entire population of a neighborhood may make the choice that an HSA school is not wanted that choice will be ignored by SUNY while the voices of the few will get their "choice." But I guess there's nothing lost in trying. --------
Please submit a quick comment by noon today to SUNY re: its final consideration of the siting of Upper West Success (a Success Academy charter school branch) elementary school within the Brandeis HS complex. Send to Ralph Rossi at charters@SUNY.edu 
 
For those not in D3, you should know that the co-location has been formally opposed by our full community board (even the charter supporters), every elected official representing the Upper West Side (and other citywide and district electeds), our full CEC (resolution is here: http://www.cec3.org/www/cecd3/site/hosting/Resolutions/Approved%20CDEC3%20Resolution%20Against%20Success%20Charter%20Co-location_01.19.11.pdf), nearly all D3 PA/PTAs and many, many residents & public school parents who have spoken at hearings, signed petitions, rallied and sent public comment. The EIS, BUP, that the PEP considered when approving the co-location on Feb 1 can be found here: http://schools.nyc.gov/AboutUs/leadership/PEP/publicnotice/2010-2011/Feb12011Proposals 
 
Thanks!
