Regents To Discuss Struggling Schools
ALBANY (AP) New York education officials are set to take up the issue of how to handle struggling schools.
A new state law gives superintendents initial receivership power over failing schools and puts the schools in the hands of outside receivers if things don't turn around.
The Regents are expected to discuss what kinds of things a receiver could do, including developing intervention plans or lengthening the school day or year.
The Alliance for Quality Education says 60 members of the parent advocacy group will rally before Monday's meeting to seek a voice in the fate of struggling schools.
