    Re: “School 41 to close and a new school to open in its place

    Rochester Musician, your question regarding what the State Education Department means by opening a different school is a good one. The commissioner is basically saying the school is a receivership school because attempts to improve achievement hasn't progressed quickly enough. Teachers and administrators met some goals for improvement, but not enough to avoid her intervention. The new school would be located in the same building, but school officials will have to propose a different teaching model. For instance, maybe they will propose creating another School of Inquiry. Or maybe they will propose adding more reading and math teachers. And yes, there could be staffing changes, but that hasn't been determined yet, according to board President Van White.

    Re: “Feedback 2/17

    Bart:

    The carousel story was pulled because it contained incorrect information. The story said that the Rochester Museum and Science Center would take the original panel and house it if the Preservation Board approved the request. But there has been no decision made on what to do with the original panel. The city would like the community's input before making any decisions about the panel's future. We are sorry for the error.

    Re: “DOE notes high pre-k suspensions

    I corrected this blog because the original version incorrectly implied that the RCSD suspends its pre-K students. For added clarification, the RCSD provided me with this statement: "We do not suspend prekindergarten students from our Universal Prekindergarten Program in the Rochester City School District. A child can't be expelled from the Universal Prekindergarten program either. We do have a safety procedure that is rarely utilized in extreme cases where after a series of steps have been taken, including parent notification, a student can be asked to refrain from attending the program for a maximum of five days while steps are taken to put in place a safety plan to address serious safety concerns. This is all done in collaboration with the parent." The statement is from Tricia Cruz, a district spokesperson.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Re: “Rochester school district may lease building space to charter

    Gotta Say It:

    There is some controversy about 690 St. Paul. The facility is shown as a Brownfield cleanup site on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's website. Remedial work was done to the site to reduce potential problems, but public safety continues to be a concern for some people.

    Hey Michael,
    You're right; I meant to correct that in my first draft and it slipped past me. Thanks so much for catching it.
