The Education Park and Its Community.
Finkel, Lawrence S.
The Education Park is designed to provide special facilities and services for community groups. By community groups we mean not only adults or those who have completed school, but school-age children regardless of their school affiliation who can reach the Education Park to utilize its facilities after the normal day school hours are completed. The principal means by which community personnel will be served at the Education Park is through the creation of an extensive youth and adult center. This center will provide a combination of recreational, avocational, and quasi-academic activities. Formal academic offerings will be provided through the following kinds of school organizations: (1) after-school study centers; (2) evening high school; (3) community education centers; and (4) summer school programs at the primary, intermediate, and high school levels. The total pupil capacity planned for the Northeast Bronx Education Park is 10,400 pupils. To provide more manageable numbers of pupils at each of the three levels, it has been decided to organize units at each school level. Pupils within each unit will remain in it for the duration of their stay at the school level (primary, intermediate, or high school) and will take the majority of their school program including their physical activities and lunch, with other students in the same unit.
