Statement from Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small
The safety and the social-emotional well-being of our students is a top priority. As our community processes today’s decision announced by Attorney General Letitia James regarding the Daniel Prude case, the Rochester City School District will have staff members available for any student who should need support. Our student support services team has resources available for students and families that can be accessed anytime at

We are here to serve the students and families of our District with compassion and understanding. Our classrooms, whether in-person or virtual, serve as safe spaces for children to learn, grow, and express themselves.
