RCSD launches survey on rezoning plan

Created: April 09, 2021 10:17 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Before the Rochester City School District creates a plan for rezoning, it wants to hear from families. 

The district wants to ensure that all students receive the same educational experience regardless of the school they attend.

The district's state monitor suggested rezoning, so RCSD came up with three options to bring back to parents. 

It will either keep the existing three zones, change them to two zones split east to west along the Genesee River, or get rid of the zones altogether and implement a neighborhood school model.

The district launched a survey for families to share their preference of the three plans.

"This can have an impact on the number of factors including where your child goes to school, how they are transported, the offering of programs and how the district uses its school buildings," Deputy Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Dr. Genelle Morris said.

The district is asking parents to watch the presentation and take the survey.

A task force will use parents' input in its presentation to the Rochester Board of Education.
