School Receivership

School Receivership

On January 17, 2019 the New York State Education Department (NYSED) announced new School Accountability Designations. Under the new designations, twelve (12) Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools will be placed under Chancellor’s Receivership. Nine (9) schools are newly identified and three (3) schools that will remain under receivership as required by New York State Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. Each school must make annual demonstrable improvement on specific benchmarks or it will be placed under an independent receiver.

School Receivership Public Hearings

In accordance with New York State Education Law §211-f, and New York State Commissioner’s Regulation §100.19, the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) is required to hold public hearings for the identified schools. The purpose of these hearings is to explain the process of receivership, discuss the performance of the school, and solicit input from the public regarding recommendations for improving the school. These public hearings were conducted in the fall and now in winter 2019 for newly identified schools.

Each hearing will take place at the school and will be scheduled for 3 hours in the evening from 6-9 p.m. The full schedule of public hearing dates and locations are listed below and can also be found in the DOE calendar.
