Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. The state education commissioner is announcing his choice for special master for Providence's Hope High School today.

The special master will oversee the struggling school's implementation of improvements.

Education Commissioner Peter McWalters ordered that the school get a so-called special master last month, when he decided that Hope could be spared a state takeover despite its poor performance.

The announcement will be made later this morning at the Department of Education.
