    Our Student Support Services Division supports the mission of the Rochester City School District for diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe in actively including and valuing all students and meeting their unique learning needs while developing their understanding and respect of difference, thus preparing them to live in an inclusive, global community and world. We envision a district where every student is encouraged to achieve their highest potential, maximizing our differences to achieve excellence. We will fully embrace our rich, diverse community as expressed through race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, sexual orientation, nationality, origin, immigration status, language background and proficiency, and family structure.

    Parents and caregivers are integral school partners in the education of their children. We welcome your input and support.
