Walcott continues his ribbon-cutting spree

In the last weeks of his chancellorship, Dennis Walcott has been focusing on the concrete things the Bloomberg administration is leaving behind.

Today, he’ll cut the ribbon on a new Adult Learning Center in Queens. Last week, he opened a brand-new school building on Staten Island, which houses P.S. 59, and he also inaugurated a new school-based health center at the struggling Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn.

Walcott’s annual first-day-of-school tour also focused on new schools constructed during the Bloomberg years. He visited Gregorio Luperon High School in Washington Heights; P.S./I.S. 48 on Staten Island; P.S./M.S. 30 in Brooklyn; and the Academy for Careers in Television and Film in Queens.
