As part of the University of Rochester, CUES has access to research conducted throughout our community of scholars. We provide this portal to gather and share their work that relates to education reform and best practices in urban education.
The PYRCH project is a collaborative effort between University of Rochester Clinicians and East Lower and Upper school Faculty and Administration to increase youth resiliency, increase screening for sexually transmitted infections, and to increase consumption of a nutritious breakfast for scholars. The three year project is being supported through funding from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation and the University of Rochester. As of the end of the 2017-2018 school year, the PYRCH project had met or exceeded outcome goals in all project domains. This report explores those outcomes and the processes used to achieve improvements for scholars and staff at East.
