The DOE said it added 25 new seats to the popular school to accomodate a long waitlist this year.
There were 2,361 kids placed on a waitlist for fall 2013, down slightly from last year.
P.S. 234 and P.S. 276 will both have to hold lotteries for kindergarten this year.
P.S. 234 is opening a sixth kindergarten class to accommodate waitlisted children.
2,406 students are currently on waitlists for zoned kindergartens across the city.
P.S. 234 has received 163 applications for 125 kindergarten seats.
The city is not changing its plan to send waitlisted P.S. 234 families to P.S. 130 in Chinatown.
The popular school has received 163 applications for 125 seats.
The city hopes to build a new 400-seat K-5 school where the Peck Slip Post Office now stands.
The education department's decision means roughly half of the 50 families still waitlisted for PS 234 will win a seat.
Parents waitlisted for PS 234 will learn Tuesday about the options for their children.
The perennially popular TriBeCa school did not have room for all the kindergartners who applied this year.
