At the September 16 information session, school district administrators explained the details of Nottingham, and 17 other SCSD schools, being in “receivership.” The designation results from a NY state law passed in April, and requires that Nottingham create a Community Engagement Team (CET) to review our School Improvement Plan (SIP), make any changes to it that the CET feels would strengthen Nottingham academically, and then submit it to the receiver, Superintendent Sharon Contreras, for approval. The CET will then be charged with monitoring Nottingham’s progress in implementing the plan

This document is Nottingham’s most recent SIP, which the CET will use as the starting point of its work: Nottingham SIG Plan 2015
