ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Rochester Teachers Association announced Monday it filed a class-action grievance against the Rochester City School District.

In a Tweet directed at Superintendent Dr. Lesli Myers-Small, the RTA account said the grievance was filed due to "repercussions" for speaking out against the district's reopening plan.

A January survey by the RTA  showed that 89% of teachers and many parents say they did not have any confidence that the District was ready for in-person classes. Myers-Small defended the reopening, saying the district has followed all protocols to keep students and staff safe.

RTA President Adam Urbanski also previously asked the district to delay its reopening.

The Tweet went on to encourage users who had complaints to do so anonymously.
