ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Teams of educators who’ve spent the past 100 days gathering ideas to improve Rochester city schools are ready to present their recommendations.

Superintendent Barbara Deane-Williams will preside over a special board meeting Thursday to hear from five “listening and learning” project teams she dispatched after taking over the district last year. The teams say they received input from more than 2,000 stakeholders.

Leaders will submit recommendations for improving five areas. They are: central office services, communications and engagement, district finances, instructional data and school climate.

The urban upstate New York district is plagued by low graduation rates and poor student performance.

The board meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
