Sources tell NY1 that parents at the Success Academy Harlem Central Middle School will file a federal lawsuit against the Department of Education for taking away the school's promised co-location.
Under the Bloomberg administration, three Success Academy charter schools were approved for co-locations with public schools for the next school year, but last month, the DOE announced that it was taking away those approvals.
Harlem Central is already operational, and the decision would displace 194 students.
The other two schools were set to open next school year.
In addition to the federal lawsuit, parents are filing two complaints with the state education commissioner challenging the co-location reversals.
Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña has said that efforts are underway to find space to accommodate the students.
The lawsuit and complaints are expected to be formally announced Monday.
