The Rochester City School Board announced Wednesday that the State Education Department approved the draft plan for the district to team up with the University of Rochester to manage East High.
However, according to the state, the university wouldn't take over the low performing facility until the 2015-2016 school year.
In the meantime, the state says new students can enroll at East for the upcoming school year.
Board President Van White said U of R couldn't take over this year as there wouldn't be enough time for a methodical process involving the entire community.
"They are going to develop something with them, so the planning process is getting people engaged with one another right now, and where they see problems with East High School, they are making recommendations to the board of education just like they would to the board of education when they take over in 2015 and we are listening," White said.
The draft intervention plan means the University of Rochester will work to improve student achievement at East High as an EPO, or Educational Partnership Organization.
According to the district, a more detailed plan about the change in management is due to the state by the end of the year. Before then, the district will submit a comprehensive educational plan to the education department by the end of July as to how to proceed for the upcoming school year.
