Summit on improving graduation rates

Rochester, N.Y. A national summit on education Wednesday will focus on how to improve high school graduation rates.

Rochester is among 15 cities participating in the event which will bring education, business and other leaders together for a discussion.

The event, held at the Riverside Convention Center, will feature speeches by local education experts and nearly a dozen interactive workshops focused on youth development, community supports, and school climate.

Numbers released in June show only about 43 percent of Rochester City School District students are graduating from high school.  That's down from 45 percent the year before.
