FAQs about School 2 Receivership

What does “Receivership” mean?

In April 2015 a new section was added to New York State Education Law that effectively placed School 2, and 144 other New York schools, into “Receivership.” The Superintendent has initially been named the Receiver and will have additional authority for two years to manage and operate all aspects of School 2 based on an intervention plan to improve academic performance.


How will Receivership affect School 2?

The Receivership law grants the Superintendent, as Receiver, the authority to make changes to the school to help improve academic achievement. Fortunately School 2 has already implemented many of the changes suggested by the State. These include:

  • Extending the school day
  • Providing uniforms for all students
  • Staff changes
  • Increased professional development and training for staff
  • Increased focus on Common Core aligned curriculum
  • Operation as a “Community School,” with health, dental and mental health services available.
  • Introduction of PROMISE events to bring the community together
  • Offering food services to all students
  • Increased project-based learning opportunities

Although School 2 has made incremental improvements over the last three years, we know there is still work to be done. The District will provide a detailed Intervention Plan to the State that outlines these and additional enhancements to School 2.  A Community Engagement Team which includes the principal, parents and guardians, district administrators, faculty and staff, as well as county and city leaders, and members of community organizations, will meet regularly to develop recommendations to be shared with the Receiver. With input from the principal, the Receiver shall determine how these recommendations are best implemented.


What is the timeline?

Under the new law, School 2 is identified as “Struggling,” based on its Priority School status since 2012-2013. Schools that have been in the most severe accountability status since the 2006-2007 are identified as “Persistently Struggling.” “Struggling” schools like School 2 have two years to show progress. If School 2 does not meet the goals set by the state in that time, the Board of Education must appoint a state-approved independent receiver to control future decisions about the school.


How can I help?

Parents and Guardians are strongly encouraged to become partners in the School 2 community. Please consider participation in the PTA, and plan on attending the various PROMISE events scheduled throughout the year. In addition, while attending School 2’s Open House on September 15, please attend the public hearing at 5 p.m. on the topic of Receivership.
