District 27

Bounded by Nassau County on one side and Brooklyn on the other, District 27 is the southernmost district in Queens. It reaches to the farthest seashores of Far Rockaway, where planes from JFK airport fly overhead, to the single-family homes in Howard Beach and Woodhaven. Although the district is racially and ethnically diverse, many neighborhoods are dominated by one particular race. Overcrowding and limited choice at the elementary and middle school levels make it difficult for most students to attend anything but their zoned school.

District contacts

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.

Family advocate: Margaret Finnerty, (718) 642-5770
