Two days before the start of school, Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration announced it is shuttering nine pre-kindergarten centers and delaying the start dates at 36 others.
 
Administration officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday that while the majority of sites have been cleared to open, safety and integrity concerns were behind the decision to revoke contracts at the nine centers, which were to serve 265 students. Those students will be reassigned at other centers.
