The public will have a chance to comment Tuesday night about plans to improve Fairview and Highland Park Elementary.
State Superintendent Glenda Ritz has hired additional staff to work intensively with 300 schools across the state.
State education officials say a lot more schools would be classified as failing under a proposed new rule -- but it‘s not clear how many more.
Bennett wants the failure window shrunk from six years to four.
Assistant Superintendent Dale Chu says the purpose of all the public meetings around the state is not necessarily to be a forum for debate.
