Within the Rochester City School District, the estimated number of children, ages 5 to 17, living within the district is more than 34,000 and the percentage of the school district population below the poverty line is more than 50 percent.
It is important to note that the data is from the U.S. Census Bureau and not local school districts.
It is reflective of the population living within each school district.
