Funny how that exactly matched the amount needed to "extend hours". Fcking criminal school adminstrators.

Isn't school aid based on attendance? Could the extended hours just be a scam to make up for lost money because of the ones that never show up?

Scam 100%. And the teachers will do a money grab for the extra hours.

Before the city worries about extended day hours they need to do something about the poor attendance. If you're not in school you're missing instruction and more likely to fail state exams. Rachel Barnhart just reported the district's attendance figures for this year. They're horrendous. To his credit, the current Superintendent is doing everything he can to fix the problem. The guy was out knocking on kids' doors to see why they weren't in school. Good for him. I can maybe understand why an 18 year old is sometimes skipping ( job, maybe they got a kid to worry about), but why are so many younger kids missing so much school? The RCSD provides transportation, food. Nothing will change until this is solved.

You could get rid of everyone running the RCSD and that still won't help.

Ghetto trash will not send their kid's to school regularly until it costs them (welfare check)

Agreed you could take a high school in the city and bus them all to Pittsford Sutherland and Remove the Pittsford kids and stick them in the city high school and the results would be Pittsford having a below 50% graduation rate and for the first time ever a city school being highest ranked.

The city school district needs to get their house in order first before they are given money. Get a better graduation rate for starters, hold the teachers, administrators and parents responsible and get them involved.

Don't extend the hours. You could spend billions and the blacks will still not give a crap. An education is worth nothing when you can live free for life off the government. The RCSD teachers are not worth $65,000 a year and half pay for life with full benefits The unions are out of control.
You make some very good posts but they loose something when you are using an almost carbon copy of " Bang Bang Bang"S name when he has been posting under that user name for a long time.

Just sayin.

Get rid of the idiot teachers who don't care (many) and the ones who can't teach (many and the stupid union (all of them, including the smirking pollack urbanski (send him back to the gulag). Socialist a. hole.
Your union is a BIG FAIL.
