Most students leaving RSD’s 4 closed, failing schools are headed to other substandard schools

Four of the Recovery School District’s failing schools will not reopen next year. In most cases, those students will be at other substandard schools. About three-quarters of students leaving Abramson Elementary James Weldon Johnson Elementary are headed to schools graded F or T, which are failing schools that are under new operators. The exception: Benjamin E. Mays Preparatory School students, who were offered preference in RSD’s enrollment process.
