Dear UCCS Families,
We are delighted to inform you that the New York State Education Department Charter School Office will be recommending Urban Choice Charter School for renewal. This means that UCCS will not be closing at the end of the school year and will continue to operate for 2020/21.
Further information about the renewal will be given in the coming weeks.
If your child is currently attending UCCS, their place here is secure. If you have entered the lottery for other schools and you are made an offer on April 15, you will need to decline the offer if you wish your child to stay at UCCS.
If current students have siblings that have not been entered for the lottery for UCCS and you wish them to have the opportunity to attend UCCS, you will need to place them in the lottery before April 1.
The Board of Trustees and school leadership have worked closely with New York State Education Department over recent weeks. NYSED made the decision to recommend a renewal based on consideration of the best interests of the Urban Choice community.
We thank you all for your support and commitment to UCCS and look forward to serving you and your children next year.
Urban Choice Charter School Board of Trustees and Leadership Team
