ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Two Deputy Superintendents have been let go by the Rochester City School District for economic and reorganizational reasons.
The Rochester City School District confirmed on Friday that an e-mail was sent out by Superintendent Terry Dade to all district personnel announcing that Elizabeth Mascitti-Miller, Ed.D and Cecilia Griffin Golden, Ph.D have had their services "discontinued."
In the letter, Dade said that the moves are a result of trying to "right-size" the district, and that it is just the start of his restructuring of the district's central office positions.
In a phone interview, Chief Communications Officer Carlos Garcia confirmed this was partly the result of the budget crisis, and that more employees will have their services "discontinued" in the coming weeks. He also said Dade will continue to give monthly budget updates.
The announcement comes just days after RCSD officials announced plans to reduce staff by 5% to cut costs during a budget crisis that occurred after the discovery of $30 million in overspending in the 2018-19 school budget.
