Academic Distress Commission coming to Youngstown schools

2009 School Report Cards

YOUNGSTOWN — The state will send an Academic Distress Commission into the Youngstown City School District to help the district map out a plan of academic recovery.

Deborah Delisle, Ohio superintendent of public instruction, said Youngstown is the only one of 610 public school districts to be placed in academic emergency on its state local report card released today. The district was in academic watch last year.

Delisle said Youngstown failed to achieve adequate yearly progress or meet its value-added component on its achievement testing nor did it meet the value-added component.

She said the commission will work with school officials to examine areas of practice and review data and will work in a collaborative fashion to determine the best course of action to improve academics.

Well I think it because they dont make enough money lets just raise taxes again beause that 9.5 mil levy we passed sure helped alot. Bad part is the board doesnt think there is a problem as long as we keep kids in school

We don't need to send the students anywhere; send the whole Youngstown school board and employees into retirement and hire good people. Most of them are past 65 anyway.

It's quite simple...dissolve the YCSD and give the kids vouchers to attend neighboring public school districts, or parochial schools, or charter schools.

oldstown...do you live in Youngstown? If so, keep your problems there!!! We have no room in suburban schools where 60 to 80 % of our taxes go to our own individual school district. Socialism does not extend across borders.
And, Robert...when is the last time you tried to teach in an inner city school system ?

What do expect when you have a Home Economics teacher as your Science Curriculum Supervisor and other unqualified people running the curriculum in Younggtown City Schools. Look real close at the administrative appointments and the dead weight in Irene Ward Building and their qualifications and you'll see why this boat is sinking.
