No Reply Yet From State Education Department On East High Proposal

  • Text size: + -

With a looming deadline, the Rochester City School Board's request for a extension regarding East High remains unanswered, for now.

A state education spokeswoman tells Time Warner Cable News that the department has received the city school board's formal request for a deadline extension, but there's no word when there will be a reply.

The state wanted the district's plan on fixing East High's academic standards by Thursday, but the board revealed last week that the University of Rochester is exploring a proposal for the school.

Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has also proposed a "phase in, phase out" model of replacing some of the school's faculty and staff.

The state ordered the district to make changes at East because of poor academic performance. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
