District 28

Located in central Queens, District 28 encompasses diverse communities ranging from the affluent, leafy neighborhood of Forest Hills Gardens filled with Tudor mansions, to the more bustling, commercial areas of Jamaica and Rego Park. Overcrowding is a problem in schools across the district with those in the more prosperous northern communities such as Forest Hills and Kew Gardens performing better than schools located in the poorer, southern sections such as South Jamaica.

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.
