Unions for RCSD employees meet with district over safety concerns

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The four unions representing employees of the Rochester City School District had a meeting with the district about safety concerns within school buildings.

The groups are concerned with order and the physical safety of students and staff.

Friday they sent a letter to Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small and the Board of Education with a list of suggestions, including more school resource officers and support services.

The letter says, “As it stands now, building administrators do not have the ability, staff, or resources to create safe school environments while providing alternatives for students who choose to disrupt the educational process.”
