    Original article:

    Rochester, N.Y. - Rochester City School District Interim Superintendent Dan Lowengard has reportedly suffered a medical emergency.

    Rochester Teachers Union head Adam Urbanski said the medical emergency happened Monday afternoon at the district's central office on West Broad Street.

    The Rochester City School District says Lowengard fainted during a meeting with school principals. The district says he was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

    Lowengard was alert immediately after the incident, and remains at Strong Memorial Hospital. Strong reports Lowengard is in satisfactory condition.

    In 2016, when Lowengard last served as the district's interim superintendent, he suffered a stroke. He had to step down from the position a week later to dedicate time to his recovery.

    This is a developing story. 13WHAM will provide updates as they become available.
