Closing the Gap


    Closing the Gap

    Promise Zone Initiative


    We are excited to share with you that the Closing the Gap and Promise Zone Initiative is in the process of being implemented at South Park High School.

    The Buffalo Promise Zone Leadership team was formed by Buffalo Public Schools, Catholic Charities of Buffalo, Erie 1 BOCES, Erie County Department of Mental Health, and the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County.

    The intent of the Buffalo Promise Zone model is to leverage existing programs and resources, including BPS Student Support Team, Closing the Gap and community partners, to provide a coordinated and integrated system of support for students, families and the school community.  Some of the main goals of the initiative are to improve student attendance, decrease office discipline referrals, decrease  
    suspensions, increase Math & ELA assesment scores, and increase parent involvement.
