("One City" was Duffy's slogan, not Warren's. Hers is "Believe.")

Statement from School Board President, Van Henri White

April 16, 2016


Quite some time ago the Mayor and several other elected officials wisely began to promote this notion that we are "One City.” You can see this slogan on many posters and signs throughout our city. It seems to me that the Mayor's proposal of a "separate school district" runs counter to the City's effort to become one city. Our initiative at East High School with the University of Rochester shows what can happen when we work as one city - or as one school district. In the coming months the Board of Education will be examining, through our 2016-2017 budget, how we can best allocate resource to meet the needs of our schools that are subject to receivership.

Currently, there are only four schools subject to external receivership this year, including East High School, Charlotte High School, James Monroe High School, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School No. 9. Of these schools, two schools - East High School and Charlotte High School - are unlikely to go into external receivership. East High School is unlikely to go into receivership because of the turnaround transformation strategies being employed by the University of Rochester, the Board’s Educational Partnership Organization. And, the Board has taken action to close the Charlotte High School program more than a year and a half ago. So, the only schools subject to receivership this year are James Monroe High School and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School No. 9. Every effort is being made to make certain that these schools are making the type of progress that will make the appointment of an external receiver unnecessary.

In the coming weeks I expect that the Board will begin deliberating over some new and exciting collaborative efforts directed at improving the outcomes of some of our most challenged schools. I look forward to discussing these ideas with the Mayor and the rest of our community. I'm convinced that these proposals, like our efforts at East High School, will prove that we are at our best when we work together, not independently, as One City.
