Hillside Work Scholarship Connection proposes to use $490,000 in funding from the New York State Department of Education during the 2016/2017 school year (January to June) to provide services to at-risk students in the Rochester City School District in our model program whose overachieving goal is student graduation.

  2. Improve attendance rates
  3. Decrease the rate of disciplinary referrals, as evidenced by a decrease in suspensions
  4. Increase the number of trained, job-ready students, as evidenced by active participation and completion of the Youth Employment Training Academy
  5. Increase employment, as evidenced by the number of students placed at employment sites.
