     The Rochester City Schools Modernization Program…

…Means Big Improvements for Dr. Walter Cooper Academy


Dr. Cooper thanks the RES Tutoring Team (and especially Bergmann Associates Executive VP, Tom Mitchell) at the June 7th “Thank You Tutors” Luncheon 

The Rochester Schools Modernization Program (the “RSMP”) was created by New York State Legislation in 2007 to help bring Rochester’s learning environment into the 21st century and provide students with facilities that are comparable to neighboring suburban districts.

Dr. Walter Cooper Academy is next in the RSMP… Beginning this Summer (2018), it will undergo a wo-year renovation to receive a new classroom wing, gym and fully reconstructed classroom facilities, including mechanical/electrical/plumbing.

Students at #10 School will be temporarily relocated to the Campus of the former John Marshall High School, at 180 Ridgeway Ave., for the 2018-19 & 2019-20 school years. They will be returning to their newly renovated facility, 353 Congress Ave., in September of 2020.

The RES Tutoring Team plans to continue its valuable support for our Scholars, as they move through this transition. We will still have a number of Scholars who will need some of that “extra” support with their reading, spelling, math, science and social studies, the kind of help that only comes with the regular, personal attention they receive from our Tutors.

“Open House” at the Marshall Campus… The Faculty and Staff of Dr. Walter Cooper Academy will host an Open House at the John Marshall Campus, 180 Ridgeway Ave., on Thursday, August 30th, from 9:00AM to 12:00PM. The RES Tutors are invited to come and see the temporary, “new” location of #10 School, during the renovation.

We are building our Tutoring Team, for the 2018-19 school year… We have been giving “Lunch & Learn” presentations in several Rochester area firms and professional groups, to inform and inspire prospective new tutors. We plan to “hit the ground, running”, next Fall, and we need your support...Can we schedule a presentation with your firm, work group, church or family, sometime this Summer?

Even just two hours a week of your time can make a big difference in the life of a Dr. Walter Cooper Academy Scholar…
