A panel voted to phase out Law, Government and Community Service High School and the Business, Computer Applications & Entrepreneurship High School and may still truncate P.S. 156 Laurelton (pictured above).

The Panel for Educational Policy voted early Tuesday morning to close two New York City public schools and phase out 22 more, including two Queens high schools, according to reports.

The Law, Government and Community Service High School, and the Business, Computer Applications & Entrepreneurship High School, both in Cambria Heights, will be phased out.

The phase out of another Queens school, P.S. 140 Edward K. Ellington, was withdrawn last month,  but the fate of another school in the borough still needs to be decided.

On March 20, the panel will vote on the truncation of  P.S. 156 Laurelton, which will eliminate its middle school.
