Update on Community Schools
As a convener of the Community Schools Leadership Team, we are happy to share that RCSD has made great strides over the past 12 months. Five of the Community Schools will be removed from the NYSED List of Receivership Schools as of July 1st, due to making “demonstrable improvement” over the past few years, with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School #9 moving from Receivership into “Good Standing”! Several schools have also added additional resources for students and their families, including emergency clothing and food pantries. And, John Audubon School #33 has been welcomed to the Community School family, bringing the current total to eleven schools overall. Be sure to tune in next month, when we begin our monthly feature on each of the Community Schools in the district, starting with Dr. MLK Jr. School #9.
