State's list of underforming schools released

The West Zone's Kennedy, Agassiz, and Trotter elementary schools and English High School are among the 12 Boston schools deemed "likely" underperforming by the state, WBZ reports. Most of these were included in the superintendent's list of 14 "turnaround schools." The new list also includes the Agassiz.

The Globe article says that the superintendents have three years to improve these schools. If they fail, the state could take over the schools. BPS superintendent Carol Johnson told the Globe that employees in roughly half of these schools will be asked to reapply for their positions.
