NYSED Statement on the Mass Shooting in Buffalo


STATEMENT FROM CHANCELLOR LESTER W. YOUNG, JR., THE BOARD OF REGENTS, COMMISSIONER BETTY A. ROSA, AND REGENT CATHERINE COLLINS, 8TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT, ON THE MASS SHOOTING IN BUFFALO

Once again, we are left with an overwhelming sense of grief that is so deep and so raw we can hardly begin to process it. We grieve for the innocent lives taken so cruelly in this incomprehensible act of violence and hatred. We grieve for the injured, their families and loved ones, their neighborhoods, and communities. And we grieve for a society that has witnessed too much violence – particularly targeted violence.  

 

Students in Buffalo and around the State and nation will need help understanding and coping with what has happened. New York’s entire educational community will be there to support our students’ social and emotional needs; to teach and model the values of fairness, inclusiveness, and respect for all; and, in the end, to demonstrate that goodness, compassion, and open-mindedness will always prevail over hatred and ignorance. That is why our schools are more important than ever.


ATTENTION: Are your scholars or colleagues doing something great? Please contact the district Communications Team at communications@necsd.net. We’d love to visit your class or event and/or post your pictures and recap to highlight the amazing accomplishments throughout our district!
