August 19, 2018 — School is set to start just weeks from today and for some students in the Rochester City School District that means an entirely new school building. Five schools are set to reopen this fall as part of the Rochester Schools Modernization Program. It was created in 2007 with a goal of improving students’ education by improving facilities to make them comparable to schools in the suburbs. Plus, Last week I had to the chance to speak to the man behind the ROC Summer Soul Music Fest. As I found out—it’s a reboot of a popular festival in Rochester that got its start just over two decades ago and it’s just as full of soul.
