Comments on the East Ramapo Central School District 2021 Academic and Fiscal Improvement Plan

By: Johanna Miller Director, Education Policy Center, Education Policy Center & Lucia Hermo Senior Strategist & Christian Singleton Spring Valley Youth Organizer, Education Policy Center

The extent of systemic racism in ERCSD is well documented, including in the holdings of two federal courts. It is because of this racist and deliberate disempowerment of the public school community that the legislature and governor determined it was necessary to mandate an unprecedented system of educational oversight, unique to ERCSD among the more than 700 school districts in New York. Formulating a meaningful, measurable, ambitious, and achievable Academic and Fiscal Improvement Plan (“the Plan”) for ERCSD is essential to the success of the district and of the monitors.
