New York State has rejected three plans to move students from failing schools. More than 2,000 students have requested transfers. The district proposals would have only accommodated 300 to 500 of those requests.
The state has until September 30th to submit a revised plan. The district has been ordered by the state to create four more schools in good standing by next September and to also find room for students from charter schools that are not making the grade.
Dr. Will Keresztes, Chief of Student Support Services, said last week, "We're going to make sure that the plan includes all of these new requests by the State Education Department, but also accounts for the charter school factor, and we'll make sure that the state gets a response by September 30th."
