State Board of Education approves English High "Co-Pilot" proposal

Also at today's meeting, the Massachusetts Board of Education voted to approve the English High School's proposal to become one of the first four Commonwealth Pilot Schools (now dubbed "Co-Pilots") next year. Faculty at English voted in favor of the proposal in January in order to accelerate the school's improvement through greater autonomy. Board members expressed confidence in plans to strengthen the school, including lower enrollment in two small learning communities, an extended school day, and a rigorous approach to ensuring college success among all graduates. See the coverage from New England Cable News.
