Quick update of school news

Rochester Coalition for Public Education (RCPE) News

  • John can arrange for anyone to receive emails and updates from the RCPE.

  • Next RCPE meeting is Dec. 30th at 4:30pm.

Walk In Items

  • What are the new developments with City administration changeover? City, State & Assembly members commenting on the Jallow issue. Good energy for advocating for community and neighborhood schools and offering local busing that builds neighborhood school attendance.

  • John has been in contact with Lashay Harris as a conduit for advising Malik Evans and letting him know what our interests are.

  • John also in contact with Caterina L. Mannino, Sr. Director of Staff & Educator Effectiveness in the RCSD Office of Human Capital.

  • James Patterson, new RCSD Board member, noted that the morning is safe for walking. The most dangerous times are in the afternoon when the drug dealers and their customers are out. That is why the push for parents & grandparents getting involved with picking up kids. Some kids may have to spend an hour or two after school in a program at the school or at a Rec. Center until; they can be picked up by a parent home from work. This concept supports fiscal responsibility. Can’t keep busing kids cross town into gang territory.

  • Patterson noted on busing that he supports that everyone being bused right now should be grandfathered in and not lose their transportation; shouldn’t cut the busing across the board. Can make new decisions about new students entering into those schools. Bottom line, RCSD needs to compete and draw students back.
