A shorter school day on Wednesdays for Rochester City School students is now a thing of the past. The superintendent has announced the elimination of the early dismissal.
The district previously let students go home 45 minutes early on Wednesdays, but the superintendent says that robs them of 29 hours of instructional time, or the equivalent of missing an entire week of school.
Superintendent Bolgen Vargas said in a statement:
"We simply must remove our District from the embarrassing - in my view, unconscionable - position of offering students the least instructional time of any group of children in Monroe County, when arguably they need and deserve the most."
