District 18 serves the neighborhoods of Flatbush and Canarsie in southeast Brooklyn, about a 45 minute ride on the L train from Manhattan. The district includes some stable and high-achieving elementary schools, but its large neighborhood high schools, including Canarsie and South Shore, are being closed down due to poor performance. The Canarsie neighborhood historically attracted many Italian and Jewish families but as these families have moved out Caribbean-Americans have moved into the many one and two family homes or to one of the several large public housing developments.
Each district has a superintendent, and a family advocate who is charged with responding to parents' concerns.
In addition, parents in each district elect a Communty Education Council (CEC), an advisory panel, to represent them. CEC members have little formal power but some are effective advocates for parents.
