New Strategies To Improve Student Safety In City Schools
by news

The president of Rochester City School District's board discussed strategies Tuesday proposed to improve student safety.

This comes after student fights and arrests at area high schools last week, and after the November conviction of former teacher Matthew LoMaglio for sexually abusing an eight-year-old boy.

Van White said now, new mandatory training policies are being formed to help teachers detect abuse and neglect. The training policy would also include crisis intervention, how to deal with blood-borne pathogens and handling hazardous materials.

"We do not want another child to be hurt. We do not want another child to be molested. We take our job as policy makers very seriously, but we can only be deemed to be credible if we enforce and make sure that those we work with enforce the very policies, which are our laws, that we pass," White said.

These new policies are expected to be put in front of the board of education for a vote by July.
