A report released on Wednesday shows that nine Rochester City School District schools on receivership have shown improvement.
The State Education Commissioner released the receivership update that identifies struggling schools that had been among the state's lowest performing schools for the previous ten years.
“While a significant majority of New York's struggling and persistently struggling schools are making progress to improve teaching and learning for our children, we know more needs to be done to ensure every child receives the education he or she deserves,” Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa said.
Among the RCSD schools included in the report, James Monroe High School, East Lower School, School 9 and East Upper High School are listed as persistently struggling.
The others school on the list include Northeast College Prep High School, School 17, School 8, School 45 and School 3.
Indicators of growth for a school can include student achievement, graduation rates, suspension rates, attendance, student safety and parent and family engagement.
The list includes total of 60 schools in receivership, with 7 designated as persistently struggling and 53 designated as struggling schools.
