Local leaders addressed the state of our children during the ‘ROC the Future’ Third Annual Report Card.
ROC the future is a public-private partnership with over 50 organizations. The goal is to improve academic achievement for Rochester’s children.
The report indicates the number of 4 year olds enrolled in pre-k has gone up since last year. The number or chronically absent children has decreased and high school graduation rates have gone up, But there are still areas that need improving.
The program tracks 45 different “cradle-to-career” indicators of academic achievement.
