On time, great presentation, good panel discussion ... but a lot of work to do on the part of GRE and GRCC to reconcile the difference and contrast of Rochester's #1 "Jump" rating with also being close to the top in concentrated and childhood poverty as well as one of the lowest performing/achieving school districts in the Country.
