About 30% of students in the incoming class of a charter high school set to open in New York City's Harlem have learning disabilities or other special needs, and about 88% qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. The founder of the startup Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation recruited students in special education, and he has been awarded a $250,000 grant for a data-tracking system to help improve instruction for students who are at-risk or in special education.
