For the second year in a row, YCS has been named a DOE Showcase School! The selection recognizes the excellence demonstrated by the entire YCS Community, including teachers, staff, administration, parents and partners.
From the DOE website: “The Showcase Schools program was launched by Chancellor Carmen Fariña in 2014, who believes that “collaboration, not competition” is the key to school improvement. With the support of the Office of Interschool Collaborative Learning, Showcase Schools each host three visits where visitors will learn about specific practices, the conditions that contribute to their growth and sustainability, and the story of how they came to be. There are currently 26 schools participating in Showcase for the 2015-2016 school year.”
