National Action Network Hosts a Community Discussion about “the State of Our Schools” on Saturday, December 15th

Parents and Community Stakeholders  are invited to join the Syracuse Chapter of the National Action Network for a Community Discussion about the State of Our Schools, Saturday December 15th, 10:00 am, the Fountain of Life Church

The New York State Department of Education recently announced Danforth Middle School, Dr. King Elementary School and Westside Academy at Blodgett Middle School may be taken over by an independent receiver because they did not make enough improvement in student performance and other measures during the 2017-2018 school year.

What could happen?

The independent receiver could be an individual, a nonprofit group with a proven track record of improving school performance or another school district in good standing approved by the New York State Department of Education.

As an alternative, the district could ask the state to phase out one or more of the three schools and replace them with new schools with different staffing, instructional practices and school environments such as PSLA at Fowler and Syracuse Latin Academy.
