WEEK AHEAD: Meeting on East High plan; Finger Lakes council choosing projects


The Rochester school board will hold a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24, to discuss the University of Rochester’s proposal to turn around East High School.

Under the proposal, which must be submitted to the State Education Department early next month, UR would become East’s Education Partnership Organization and essentially manage all aspects of the school.

The Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council meets Tuesday, June 24, to discuss priority projects for the year.

Each year, the council solicits applications for state funding, then reviews and ranks them before forwarding them on to state agencies. The applications have been submitted and the ranking process starts soon.

During the meeting, the council’s work groups will present their recommendations on which projects or project types should get priority.

The meeting will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Wegmans Conference Center, 200 Market Street, Chili. BY JEREMY MOULE
