The Rhode Island Department of Education is seeking to extend the deadline for its Providence School District turnaround plan.
The state took over the district in 2019 following a scathing public report on its performance.
The turnaround plan was supposed to be five years, but State Education Commissioner says the coronavirus pandemic caused a delay in meeting the goals.
Among the goals was to insure that 90 percent of the students were in class 90 percent of the time.
A progress report on the turnaround plan was given to the Rhode Island Senate Oversight Committee on Monday night.
