EVENT: University of Rochester to Host Family Information Sessions for East High School

East LogoWHO: The University of Rochester and East High School invites prospective students and their families to attend an upcoming East High Family Information Session to learn more about the new East High. At each session, families will have an opportunity to visit the school, meet the leadership team, learn about the unique partnership with the University of Rochester, and hear about the strong academic and career preparation programs and full complement of athletic and extra-curricular activities planned for the 2015-16 school year.
 
TIME, DATE, PLACE: Family Information Sessions for prospective students and their families will be held at East High School (1801 E. Main Street) in the Auditorium on the following days:

  • Mon., January 26, at 7 p.m.
  • Thurs., January 29, at 5:30 p.m.
 
ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP: On Jan. 14, the Rochester Board of Education received a letter from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) conditionally approving the plan for the educational partnership with the University of Rochester, allowing the University and East High community to begin planning and hiring staff for the rollout of the new East High School. Pending final approval from the State, the University of Rochester will serve as the Educational Partnership Organization (EPO) for East High School, assuming full management responsibilities for East starting July 2015. East will serve students in Grades 6-12. Entrance will be by student choice, giving priority to students living in proximity to East and neighborhoods surrounding the school.
