Kyesha Jackson is principal at PS 67, a Renewal School that is transitioning to a “Rise School,” as the investments of the staff and administration pay dividends. In this article, she gets kudos for her efforts from the head of Partnership with Children.

Each Renewal School has a non-profit partner to lead its transformation into a community school; the goal is to bring together the expertise of educators and community partners to make improvements across all the areas schools need to succeed.

We … have an excellent partnership at P.S. 67 with the ambitious and impressive principal and her dedicated team. Partnership with Children staff are in the school building before, during, and after the school day – and on the weekends and during the summer – working side-by-side with the principal. Parents stay after drop-off and pick-up to meet with guidance counselors and social workers, teachers are eager and faculty retention is increasing, and student outcomes are improving. Proficiency in ELA has improved 20 percentage points; in math, 10 points. This is what happens when everyone in a school building puts their resources, experience, and heads together.

We’re proud to see our Alumni in the news! Ms. Jackson graduated from our College of St. Rose School Building Leader program. Congratulations to her for enacting her school vision, enlisting support, and turning around this school.
