Families who were waitlisted at their zoned kindergarten recently received letters offering an alternate placement for the fall. The Department of Education sent 980 alternate offers to students six weeks earlier than last year, when waitlists were also a problem.
In District 3, 59 Upper West Side students who are waitlisted at P.S. 87 and P.S. 199 were given offers at P.S. 75, P.S. 84 and P.S. 191. Families have until June 18 to decide where they would like to enroll.
