Feedback Opportunity

What is Receivership

  • State law requires “persistently struggling or struggling schools” to make rapid achievement gains.
  • If not met within 1-2 years, District is required to appoint a receiver approved by the State
  • An appointed receiver will have a broad authority to set and manage school improvement plans
  • Superintendent will acts as a receiver first
  • Data for improvement targets will be released. (not yet determined)

10 schools currently in Receivership


By 2/18 the following must happen.

  • communicate the school’s status; have done this via Robocalls, flyers, parent letter, community letter, social media
  • Establish a CET; established 2/6
