The Official Story

Linked below are the documents that the DOE has released detailing their plans for a charter school co-located in Satellite Academy. They include:

The Public Notice
The Educational Impact Statement (EIS)
The Building Utilization Plan

Quick facts:
-The charter school, ROADS II, is scheduled to open in September for the 2012-2013 school year.
-Satellite Academy currently has 20 full-size classrooms. Under the charter school co-location, it will be limited to 12 full-size rooms and 5 half-size rooms.
-The Department of Education claims that this reduction in class space will have "no impact" on education at Satellite Academy.
-At no point during the planning process has the Department of Education contacted Satellite Academy parents, teachers, or students for input.
