Committing to the Success of Students and Families in School, Career and Life
As New York State's fifth Promise Zone Site, Broome County Promise Zone officially started in December 2013. Promise Zone has implemented the first and only county-wide university-assisted community school model to support students and families as they move towards success in school, career and life. Promise Zone began partnerships with five school district and has grown to partner with seven districts in Broome County as of the 2016-2017 academic year. In our first full year of service, 450 students and 100 families were involved with Promise Zone. During the past school year, we have served 1051 students and 450 families.
