Public advocate commends Dewitt Clinton H.S. principal, staff

Public advocate Betsy Gotbaum says overcrowding is only one of a few issues she found during a surprise visit to Dewitt Clinton High School on Monday. But she says although the school in overcrowded by almost 1,000 students, the school principal and staff is handling the problem quiet well. Gotbaumb was also surprised to see a school with 4,700 students without metal detectors. The public advocate says the overcrowding problem will be alleviated once construction is completed. She says right now, students are loosing classroom space because of the construction, but the project does include building additional classrooms. The school hopes construction will be completed sometime during the school year. Gotbaum says she has asked the principal for a progress report to make sure the school follows up on improvements.
