State Needs More Time To Meet Providence School Goals

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.
