Middle School Application Hotline Launched By UES Parent

(DNAINFO) Shaye Weaver | November 25, 2016 — Eric Goldberg, a member of the District 2 Community Education Council, will call parents who need help.

With the deadline for middle school applications just around the corner, a member of District 2’s Community Education Council is launching a hotline to help parents through the process.

Earlier this month, the CEC released middle school criteria of 12 out of 15 schools for screening students’ applications.

The information provided parents with a glimpse of how their schools weigh various criteria including grades, attendance and how students rank their school choices.

As the Dec. 2 application deadline looms closer, CEC member Eric Goldberg is using the findings and his own experience to help answer parents’ questions about admissions, offering to call parents who sign up for his hotline.

Families in District 2 can choose from 50 slots of 15 minutes each between 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29 through Thursday, Dec. 1., and Goldberg will call parents to answer their questions, he said.
