PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Senate Committee on Rules Government Ethics and Oversight will meet later this week to discuss the turnaround efforts in Providence schools.

Back in June of 2020, the Rhode Island Department of Education released a turnaround plan for Providence Public Schools. The plan was released one year after Johns Hopkins University sent out a review of the district’s performance to the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education.

The state took control of the district in November 2019, a few months after the report came out.

The Committee will review the plan and the progress that has been made in a meeting Wednesday.

Anyone looking to testify can attend the meeting starting at 5:30 p.m.
