State Sets Plan To Fix Schools In Lawrence

Most Lawrence schools will boost instructional time by 160 hours a year and some of the city’s lowest-performing schools will get a helping hand from charter school organizations, under a plan the state approved Tuesday that aims to turn around the long-ailing school system. The plan is the first look at how the state intends to overhaul the system since taking it over earlier this year, and represents one of the boldest partnerships between a school district and charter schools.
