Education commissioner's report on Trevyan Rowe expected to be released soon
Rochester, N.Y./Albany, N.Y. – A report concerning the death of a Rochester student last year, from the State Education Commissioner’s Office, is expected to be released soon.
In Rochester Thursday, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia said the report on Trevyan Rowe’s death is expected in the next two to three weeks.
The commissioner’s office, along with the State Attorney General’s Office, have been investigating the circumstances that led up to Rowe’s death last March.
Rowe was last seen getting off a school bus at School No. 12 in Rochester. He never made it inside the building, but was not declared missing until 10 hours later. His body was recovered three days later from the Genesee River.
Following his death, the Rochester City School District superintendent said staff members tried to alter attendance records on the day Rowe went missing. Six 911 employees were also suspended following his death.
The investigation by the commissioner’s office is examining procedures, policies and protocols to review what changes must be made moving forward.
