Connections: Rochester City School District Superintendent Terry Dade


We sit down with Terry Dade, the new superintendent of the Rochester City School District. Dade signed a three-year contract with the district, and started the job on July 1. Previously, he served as assistant superintendent in Fairfax County Public Schools in the Washington, D.C. area, where he led an effort to improve some of that district’s lowest-performing schools.

Dade discusses his priorities for the RCSD and his ideas for making improvements in a number of areas. We also talk about the current debate over a possible state takeover of the district.
