As seen in the print version of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle on Sunday, December 17, 2023:

During this season of thanks and gratitude, Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD) extends its appreciation to Gov. Hochul and the Legislature for their commitment to New York’s 4201 Schools. As a member of the 4201 Schools Association, which represents 11 schools serving children with low-incidence disabilities, we depend on state funding. Resources allocated to our school support an inclusive learning environment and an accessible campus for staff, students, their families, and community partners.

RSD educators are experts in their field. We’re fortunate to have top-tier, specially-trained professionals working to develop comprehensive programs based on the needs of students. In addition to retaining our skilled workforce and supporting student services, state investments are critical to maintaining classrooms, residential facilities, and the campus at large.

Since 1876, RSD has helped students reach their greatest potential, and the state’s continued support for 4201 schools will ensure our children continue to be successful.
