According to the state, nine Rochester schools put in receivership showed "demonstrable improvement" last year.
The schools are being monitored by the state because they have been found to be struggling or underperforming.
Deputy Superintendent Beth Mascitti-Miller says she is "absoultely thrilled" by the news, and that the Rochester City School District is trending in the right direction for students.
“I believe that we will continue to see the trajectory of improvement with our kids," she said via phone Thursday.
Mascitti-Miller says even though the schools are safer from the threat of being closed, administrators and district officials have to remain dilligent about meeting the state's expectations.
