• A Message From Our Chief 


    Ruth B. Turner
    Chief of Student Support Services and Social Emotional Learning


    As the Chief of Student Support Services and Social Emotional Learning, I assist with the planning, delivery, assessment and ongoing improvement of several programs. This includes, but is not limited to, the Offices of Attendance, Student Health Services, Primary Project, Restorative Practices, Families in Transition as well as the School Social Work and School Counseling departments. It is my role to assist in the development of best practices and programs that will support the social and emotional health of all students. This is achieved through working cooperatively with school principals, central office staff and collaborating with community agencies to support student, staff and parent needs. It is my hope that teachers, families and school social workers continue working together and foster successful outcomes for students in the Rochester City School District.
