Academic Distress Commission

Youngstown Academic Distress Commission

 

Academic Status
In Ohio, a district that fails to make adequate yearly progress for four or more years is placed in Academic Emergency and a state commission becomes the governing board. Youngstown City Schools was placed in Academic Emergency in 2010.

The Youngstown Academic Distress Commission (YADC) is currently in place and has adopted an Academic Recovery Plan. The plan includes:

  • Short and long-term goals to improve the district’s performance
  • Action plans
  • Resources to be applied toward improvement efforts
  • Monitoring and evaluation procedures
  • Reporting requirements

The district will remain under the jurisdiction of the ADC until the district reaches Continuous Improvement for two consecutive years. The Youngstown Board of Education and superintendent must work hand in hand with the Commission as long as it remains in place.

In the 2010-11 school year, the district improved its academic rating to Academic Watch.
