RCSD to discuss options for underperforming East High

Rochester Business Journal
March 19, 2014

The Rochester City School District will meet next week to discuss the fate of East High School, which has been identified by the state department of education as a low-performing school that must either be closed or replaced by another school.

In a letter sent to the district last week, the state determined that East High School failed to make academic progress over the last three years. The state required that the district options to either phase out the school and replace it with an entirely new one, enter a contract with an educational partnership organization to take over administration, convert it to a charter school or allow the State University of New York to provide education for the students.

In addition, the district must offer the students access to an approved career and technical education program at a BOCES or within a school district in good standing with the state.

The district must have a plan in place by the end of April, and has scheduled a town hall meeting at East High School at 6 p.m. March 26.
