Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Innovation and School Reform, Dr. Cheryl Atkinson, visited Poughkeepsie Middle School in regards to the school being one of 145 schools across New York State identified as receivership schools. The Poughkeepsie Middle School was re-identified as a “priority” school in February 2016.
The 64 Struggling Schools that were re-identified as “priority” in New York State in July of 2015, must show Demonstrable Improvement by the end of the 2016-17 school year or an independent receiver will be appointed to operate these schools.
We thank the Poughkeepsie Middle School Summer Learning Academy staff, under the direction of Principal Da’Ron Wilson, for setting standards of excellence, investing in our middle school scholars, and providing opportunities for rigorous, relevant project-based learning.

School may be out, but the cafeteria at Poughkeepsie High School is filled with busy chefs slicing, dicing, and preparing fresh food in order to ensure City of Poughkeepsie children who depend on free and reduced-priced lunches during the school year do not go hungry during the summer.
The Summer Food Services Program is federally funded and provides a no cost breakfast and lunch to children who are residents of the City of Poughkeepsie and who are 18 years old or younger. The program was created to make nutritious meals available to students who during the summer do not have access to school meals. There are no forms, residency or citizenship rules. A typical meal may include a sandwich, fresh fruit, salad, juice, and milk. The Poughkeepsie City School District is a federally approved provider for this program. Last summer in the City of Poughkeepsie, approximately 60,000 lunch and breakfast meals were provided.
There are 14 convenient locations where free meals will be served within the City of Poughkeepsie weekdays from June 27, 2016, to August 26, 2016. Please see the chart below for the complete list. A celebratory kick-off event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pulaski Park Pool on July 15, 2016. There will be games, books for the children, and information about healthy eating.
