Another public hearing took place Thursday to discuss the future of Rochester's East High School. Members from the community and Board of Education gathered to go over the five options for the school.
Over the last three years, the school has failed to make any academic progress, and the State Education Department is now requiring changes be made.
The district will need to decide whether or not to close the school, phase the school out and replace it with a new school, have an Educational Partnership Organization take over administration of the school, convert it to a charter school or allow SUNY to provide the education.
"I really don't think that this is really going to play a part in the decisions because the decisions are already being made. This is what they call going through the motions to pacify or to suffice what the state recommends that you do," said Cliandra Yarde, a 6th grade teacher at Nathaniel Rochester Community School.
The superintendent has said he is not recommending East High School close.
The district must submit a plan to the state to address academic progress by April 30. Whatever changes decided upon will be implemented this September.
