Mayor de Blasio visits PS 154 in the Bronx, a Renewal and Community School Part One

PS 154 is a Renewal and Community school. 

About the Renewal School Program

The Renewal School 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 others 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                                

    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
