Rochester School Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small Wednesday pushed back against union demands for a firmer response to violence in city secondary schools, instead laying out a series of incremental solutions within a “nurturing environment of equity.”

Most notably, Myers-Small did not endorse a return of Rochester police officers to RCSD secondary schools. They now are monitoring student arrival and dismissal outside secondary buildings; the school board will decide Tuesday whether to continue that arrangement.
