Despite a few "tech" issues, (Elmwood Ave construction and the Alert system test) it was great. Fascinating conversation, sadly, I didn't know there would be a reception after, so I had booked something else, so I had to leave. Wish I had known about the reception in advance.

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.
