Break The Chain! Pass The Code!

The Rochester City School District Board of Education has shown leadership by committing to rewrite their discipline policies and pass a new Code of Conduct. Suspensions and arrests are out of control, with over 10,000 students being removed from the classroom every year and many dropping out of school or ending up in prison as a result. This is known as the School-to-Prison Pipeline: students being pushed out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system.To Break The Chain, we must Pass The Code!

What: Break The Chain! Pass The Code! - Rally For Positive School Climate

When: Thursday, January 28 at 6pm

Where: 131 W. Broad St., Rochester, NY

While parents and the community thank the Board of Education for committing to this process of reform, we now ask they move that process to a conclusion. The Community Task Force and the Board of Education must understand how urgent this crisis is. Every day we wait more students are losing time in class to suspensions, falling behind, and dropping out of school. 

We are holding this rally on the eve of February, which is a month to celebrate Black History. Unfortunately, we know young black men suffer the most under the school-to-prison pipeline. Let's Break The Chain. The Board can make history of its own, by committing to introduce a draft of the new code of conduct by the end of February. 

If the Community Task Force is unable to produce a final copy by the end of February, Metro Justice and the Advancement Project will present the most recently revised Code of Conduct on January 28th. This Code of Conduct is one the community supports and is willing to move forward with.

We ask everyone in the community to show your support by attending this important rally at 131 W. Broad St., Rochester, NY, Thursday, January 28 at 6pm.
