The fallout and finger-pointing inside the Rochester City School District continues following the death of 7th grader Trevyan Rowe.

The fallout and finger-pointing inside the Rochester City School District continues following the death of 7th grader Trevyan Rowe.

Three teachers are on administrative leave after the district says they marked Rowe present on Thursday despite the fact he never made it through the front doors of School #12. At least one of those teachers is also accused of altering attendance records in an attempt to cover up the error.

One full-time teacher and two regular substitute teachers marked Rowe present at different times during the day on Thursday when in reality, surveillance video shows him getting off the school bus around 7am in front of School #12 and walking away from the building. It was 8-hours before his mother knew that he never made it into school. She never got a phone call from the district. It was only after her other children got off the bus in the afternoon without their brother that she called to inquire about his whereabouts.

After an exhaustive weekend-long search, Rowe’s body was recovered from the Genesee River on Sunday evening. “We simply were not as careful as we should have been and there were dire consequences for that,” Barbara Deane-Williams, the RCSD Superintendent said at a press conference on Tuesday evening.

None of the five district employees, tasked with monitoring students outside of School #12 saw Rowe get off the school bus and wander away. Video shows he was the second-to-last student off the bus. “We're working to make sure this never happens again,” Deane-Williams said. When asked what, specifically that meant and whether principals and teachers would be fired, Deane-Williams said, “Specifically, we are affording as we must, due-process to all employees. We're making certain that we have the facts and that the consequences are appropriate.”

The Rochester Teachers Union says it’s waiting for more information from the district. President Adam Urbanski spoke with News10NBC on Wednesday.

Adam Urbanski:” The responsibility of the teachers union is not to defend the indefensible but rather to ensure fairness and due process.”

News10NBC: ”It seems like attendance should be the very basic part of a teacher's job. “

Adam Urbanski: And it is, and it is.

News10NBC: “Has the district showed you any evidence of what they said last night?”

Adam Urbanski: “I have not seen any evidence but we want the same thing the district wants, we want procedures and protocols and systems to be reviewed and to be adjusted if necessary and obviously, there’s a need to adjust them so this doesn’t happen ever again.”

News10NBC: “The person who is alleged to have altered the attendance records, is that a teacher or an administrator?”

Adam Urbanski: “I don’t know yet… Was it altered? Was it corrected? Was it a mistake? Was it intentional? I don’t know any of the answers to these questions so I think an independent investigation will get to the bottom of this. “

News10NBC: “What do you want the parents in this community to know about the teachers in this district and whether they can execute attendance in the way they should be?”

Adam Urbanski: “I want them to know first and foremost that we share the grief and the pain about the tragedy, I want them to know that we want to be part of the solution, we’re willing to support reconsidering whatever processes or procedures that exist that need reconsidering.”

Deane-Williams said that she wants to place attendance clerks in each and every city schools to make personal phone calls to parents when students don’t show up for school. Currently, the policy is that a robocall goes out at 11am for students who are marked absent in their homeroom class.
