City launches school-support centers, a key element of Fariña's system shakeup
from Chalkbeat New York
Chancellor Carmen Fariña's redesigned system for supporting and overseeing schools entered a new phase Wednesday with the official launch of seven new help centers where schools will turn for guidance on everything from budgeting to teacher training. The centers have been slowly coming to life over the past several months, as their directors hired about 600 staffers who have helped principals craft their budgets for next year. With their formal kickoff July 1, the centers officially replace the previous administration's system of about 55 smaller support teams called "networks."
