A grim, unbroken streak continues for Roosevelt High School on Long Island.

The school has made the state's annual list of worst performing schools for the 20th year in a row.

The school's new principal tells Newsday that the bad run of luck won't last much longer.

Roosevelt is the only school on Long Island to make the list.

Albany took control of the Roosevelt School District eight years ago, but that hasn't produced much improvement.
