CHARTER ASSOCIATION SHARES LOCAL SCHOOLS’ BEST PRACTICES AT ROCHESTER BOARD OF EDUCATION SUMMIT
NECSN highlights extraordinary work of some of Rochester’s exemplary charter schools, shares best practices for benefit of all city children
Albany, NY – The Northeast Charter Schools Network today participated in the Rochester Board of Education’s first annual Best Practices Summit, sharing key aspects of three local charter schools’ innovative models and successes. Central New York Advocacy Manager Justin Kwasa took part in the summit and shared information from a fact sheet, Sharing Best Practices - Rochester Charter Schools Tell Us What's Working. The fact sheet profiled three local charter schools and their exceptional work: Genesee Community Charter School, Eugenio Mario de Hostos Charter School, and Vertus Charter School.
Northeast Charter Schools Network Central New York Advocacy Manager Justin Kwasa said, “Contrary to what charter foes may have you believe, our schools want to share what’s working well for their students. Today’s summit was a chance for us to highlight and share three exceptional schools’ best practices. We are committed to sharing these innovations so that all children in the city can benefit.”
Genesee Community Charter School is a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon Expeditionary Learning School. Eugenio Maria de Hostos is the city’s oldest charter school. Its elementary school is bilingual and there is a strong emphasis on the Spanish language. Vertus Charter School, which opened in the fall of 2014, is an all-boys blended learning high school.
All three schools welcomed the chance to share their successes in teaching children with other schools and educators.
