Eighteen schools in the Syracuse City School District have been placed in “receivership” status by the New York State Department of Education. This designation means that for these schools, the 2015-2016 school year will include changes in school operations and other efforts to improve school performance.
To ensure that parents are fully informed about the receivership process, the Syracuse City School District has scheduled a series of public hearings. These hearings will help parents understand how the receivership will impact the operation of a child’s school and will allow them to ask questions about the process.
The public hearings are scheduled as follows:
