With massive budget cuts to education threatened, the charter cap raised, and new school construction unable to keep pace with demand, it’s no surprise that more than half of all the city’s public schools share space with at least one other school.
Peaceful co-existence is the gold standard for sharing space -- "co-locations" in DOE-parlance --and some schools maintain harmony despite scheduling challenges and limited space. Other schools don’t fare as well, clashing over everything from use of classrooms and the gymnasium to which students get 10 a.m. lunch!
