Victor Schools take action after controversial book

The superintendent of the Victor Central School District says administrators are working on a plan to involve training and new curriculum following a book of poems published by high school students.

“We need to ingrain in or students as part of being a productive citizen that you have a responsibility to society,” said Superintendent Dawn Santiago-Marullo.

Many considered the book racist, explicit and homophobic.

“We have plans to do some additional training with staff and with students as well as look at some curriculum possibilities around civility and social responsibility,” said Superintendent Santiago-Marullo. “It won’t be completed until fall because we really want to engage our staff and our students and or parents in that conversation this fall in order to make sure all the voices that need to be heard are heard.”
