6 turnarounds planned for fall

By by Paul Jablow on Jan 30, 2013 04:27 PM

Superintendent William Hite says he plans to tackle six more turnarounds of low-performing schools next fall: three charter-run Renaissance schools and three District-managed.    

District officials say their past turnaround efforts have been successful. The Renaissance initiative is one reason the District predicts continued increases in charter enrollment.

But a consulting group monitoring the Renaissance schools says further research is needed. In its February 2012 report on “Philadelphia’s Renaissance Schools Initiative,” Research for Action found early results from both charter-operated Renaissance Schools and District-run Promise Academies were encouraging, but questions remained.

The study, funded by the District’s Accountability Review Council, found that among K-8 schools, both turnaround models outperformed other District schools in 2010-11. Results for high schools were less conclusive. The report cautioned that further research is needed on what brought about the gains, whether they can be sustained beyond one year, and the effect on District schools not selected as turnarounds. 

A spokesperson for Mastery Charter Schools said that organization “has the capacity to open or turn around three schools a year for the foreseeable future.” 

The Renaissance elementary schools taken over by Mastery have also grown their enrollments significantly, said the spokesperson, Courtney Collins-Shapiro.

“The issue we should be talking about isn’t whether we should have public charter or district schools.” she said. “They are all public schools. The issue is that we’ve still got 40,000 to 50,000 kids in low-performing schools in Philadelphia, and we have to work together to solve that problem.”

Personally, I believe that most people don't give enough thought as to the inflammatory aspects of the food they eat. Chronic or low grade, long lasting inflammation, is believed to be the root cause of many age related diseases, (almost everything from arthritis to alzheimers, according to some sources). Some foods are inflammatory and some are anti-inflammatory. It's always a good idea to balance the two as much as you can.

The plan will be based on your disposable income (calculated by the last 6 months of income minus your living costs. The living costs are different for different areas, but generally consist of mortgage/rent, utilities, home maintenance, monthly food cost, clothing/laundry, transportation, and personal care.).

It is amazingly essential to have a suitable Accounting System introduced all through your business so information obtaining is simple. You can't deal with your Business for Profitability without a decent Accounting System. My CPA has an accountant who turns out to the business to help introduce the Accounting System and demonstrate to us proper methodologies to work it. For more info write my essay for me see here. It is good website. The majority of this is finished with the direction of the CPA however at a small amount of the expense. A decent Bookkeeper is precious in helping catch Financial Data. Having a created working Accounting System set up will minimize the expenses a CPA charges to examine your expense risk and set up your assessment forms.
