ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The New York State Education Department appointed a new monitor for the Rochester City School District Thursday.
Shelley Jallow, Ph.D. will oversee both academic and fiscal issues.
According to the state, she has decades of experience in school district turnaround and leadership operations.
Most recently, she served as Senior Director of School Improvement in the Learning Innovations Program at WestEd in San Francisco.
RCSD's new superintendent Lesi Myers-Small released the following statement:
"I welcome Dr. Jallow to the Rochester City School District. Her addition will be tremendously helpful not only for me, but also the entire District. She is someone who is familiar with urban school districts like Rochester and how a large school system works. Dr. Jallow will bring experience and another set of eyes to help build the RCSD toward academic and financial strength. I am committed to providing research, reports, and other pertinent information to Dr. Jallow to improve fiscal and academic outcomes for all of our students.”
