Happening Now: Summer Learning Opportunities for Students of Renewal Schools

 
Summer is just around the corner and preparations are underway for this year’s Summer in the City (SITC) summer learning program! This year’s revamped summer program includes several enhancements designed specifically with students attending Renewal Schools in mind. The enrichment programs listed below are for students who:

  1. attend Renewal Schools, and
  2. are not required to attend summer school. 

When a student doesn’t meet the promotion standards for his or her grade, the family will get a letter recommending that the student go to summer school. Promotion in Doubt letters were mailed in February and Promotion Decision letters will be mailed in June.

If you have a question about whether your child should attend summer school, or if they are eligible for the enrichment programs outlined below, please contact the principal at your child's school. Use the school search to find the contacts at your school. All summer school and promotion policy is detailed in 
Chancellor’s Regulation A-501.

About the School Renewal Program

The School Renewal Program is a call to action. The NYCDOE will work intensively with each Renewal  School community over the next three years, setting clear goals and—with support from Central—holding each school community accountable for rapid improvement. The NYCDOE has selected as Renewal Schools those schools that met all three of the following criteria and four that were added per the Chancellor’s discretion:

    1. Were Identified as Priority or Focus Schools by the State Department of Education
      Priority: The bottom 5% lowest-performing schools statewide
      Focus: The bottom 10% of progress in a subgroup
    2. Demonstrated low academic achievement for each of the three prior years (2012-2014):
      Elementary and middle schools in the bottom 25% in Math and ELA scores
      High schools in the bottom 25% in four-year graduation rate
    3. Scored “Proficient” or below on their most recent quality review


Building on the Chancellor’s vision, the NYCDOE is looking beyond test scores to determine where schools need to improve.

Key Elements of the Plan

  1. Transforming Renewal Schools into Community Schools, with deepened support from and for families and community partners. Partnerships with community-based organizations will enable these schools to offer tailored whole-student supports, including mental health services and after-school programs.
  2. Creating extended learning time – an extra hour added to the school day to give all students additional instructional time.
  3. Supplying resources and supports to ensure effective school leadership and rigorous instruction with collaborative teachers.
  4. Performing school needs assessments across all six elements of the Framework for Great Schools (rigorous instruction, collaborative teachers, supportive environment, effective school leadership, strong family-community ties, and trust) to identify key areas for additional resources.
  5. Bringing increased oversight and accountability including strict goals and clear consequences for schools that do not meet them.
