ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Rochester City School District's four persistently struggling schools have made demonstrable improvement, according to the state education department.
The determination came following the 2015-16 school year, before which ten schools throughout New York State were appointed superintendent receivers.
In Rochester, East Lower School, East Upper High School, James Monroe High and School No. 9 made improvements.
East Upper was already cleared to keep its Educational Partnership Organization, The University of Rochester, for another year due to extenuating circumstances.
