Boston schools face $33m shortfall, plan for the 2008-9 year

While some programs and/or administrative positions will have to be cut, the new superintendent has an array of new ideas to raise graduation rates and keep families in the Boston schools. These include:
  • adding college-level courses
  • "credit recovery" programs to reduce the number of high school dropouts
  • expanding arts and music programs
  • a new school for immigrant students who are not fluent in English
  • expanded preschool
  • more K-8 schools
  • a new office to raise funds for the school system
  • an Accountability Office to oversee improvement in failing schools
