Credit Diploma Program Still Teeters On Edge Of Existence

The city's Credit Diploma Program hasn't died yet, but it's future remains in doubt.
The board of education last night heard a presentation on the ongoing redesign of adult education in the city from Executive Director Eduardo Genao and Kelvin Roldan, the school district's director of strategic partnerships.
Their presentation -- big surprise -- aligns with the recommendation of Superintendent Steven Adamowski: kill the CDP.
Adamowski has been public about his lack of love for the program because it doesn't require the same academic standards for graduation as a traditional diploma. He put an end to district high school students attending the program two years ago. But at least two members of the school board last night expressed a desire to keep the program alive.
