Future of RCSD School 41 up in the air

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Seven of eight schools in the Rochester City School District received high marks for their effort to improve. But the fate of one school is now up in the air.

The State Education Department says Nathaniel Rochester School No. 3, Roberto Clemente School No. 8, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School No. 9, Enrico Fermi School No. 17, Mary McLeod Bethune School No. 45, James Monroe High School and Northeast High School were all determined to have made demonstrable improvement and will focus on continuing improvements.

Kodak Park School No. 41 did not make demonstrable improvement. The school district has 60 days to choose one of two options: appoint an independent receiver who would take over the school, or close the school and replace it with a newly registered school.

“The news of the Commissioner’s determination regarding School No. 41 is disappointing. However, the Rochester City School District is currently in the midst of developing a Path Forward which presents us with an opportunity to plan next steps”, said Lawrence “Bo” Wright, RCSD Deputy Superintendent of Administration.

The school board and the superintendent will work together to decide the next course of action for School 41.
