Rochester, N.Y. -- The Rochester City School Board voted in favor of a plan that would see the University of Rochester to take over troubled East High School and act as an educational partnership organization beginning in the 2015-16 school year.

The university is still working on the plan , and with the state's deadline a week away, the district has asked the State Education Department to push that deadline back to July 1.

Meanwhile, in a unanimous vote, the School Board signed off the district's nearly 788 million dollar budget for next year as well last night.
