ROCHESTER, N.Y (WROC) — "An out-of-state non-profit says over 20 families with ties to Franklin High School have called for them to do their own investigation about a shooting outside their front doors earlier this month.
The Uvalde Foundation for Kids, formed after last year’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, plans to offer its own resources to help RCSD students. By launching this investigation, leaders with the Uvalde Foundation for Kids say they don’t want to pass the blame onto the Rochester City School District. Still, partnering with them to collaborate on plans to ensure students are safe on campus.
After multiple students and families of the Franklin High School community reached out to their organization, Daniel Chapin, Founder of the Uvalde Foundation for Kids says many accuse RCSD and the school of not being transparent on changes they could implement. “The school is all too familiar and quite comfortable in fact with what’s going on,” Chapin said. “It is that kind of mentality that’s going to cost lives."
