Dear I.S. 24 Parent or Guardian,
This letter is to notify you that our school, Myra S. Barnes Intermediate School 24, has been designated for Local Support and Improvement (LSI) by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) for the 2022-23 school year based on the performance of our students on New York State assessments in school year 2021-22. The previous designation “Good Standing” has been changed to “Local Support and Improvement (LSI),” to recognize that all schools, even higher performing schools, are in a continuous improvement mode and can benefit from local support from their districts to meet students’ differentiated needs. LSI is the best accountability status currently available.
The school’s designation is part of the state’s accountability system consistent with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requirements. In the 2023-24 school year, NYSED will be updating school accountability designations based on school year 2022-23 results.
I’m confident that the programs and interventions that are being implemented citywide and at our school will continue to make the 2022-23 school year a high-quality educational experience for your child.
Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support. Our entire school staff is committed to ensuring a successful year for our students and school community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Parent Coordinator, Mrs. Joann Turano at 718-982-4700 x2402 or by email at [email protected].
