E3 Rochester was created to help expand the number of high quality K-12 education seats for low-income children living in the city of Rochester, New York. We aim to have three additional K-12 charter management organizations (“CMOs”) in Rochester by 2021. To reach our goal, we plan to recruit three high performing CMOs to our region and leverage the assets that the city of Rochester and the state of New York provide to new charter schools. Once CMOs are recruited, we will work to minimize the three main challenges they face during expansion: (1) financing, building and maintenance of real estate; (2) start up funding, and (3) political and community support.
E3 Rochester is in start-up phase and is currently developing its core programs and strategies.
