Greater Rochester school districts have joined together with Causewave Community Partners (formerly the Advertising Council of Rochester) and local businesses to get the word out about the high quality of education in our community. The campaign, titled “ACT (A Community Together) for Education” exists to build active community involvement in schools. Its main objective is to communicate how public schools in our community:

  • Enhance workforce development and future economic vitality
  • Have a direct impact on home values
  • Attract and retain quality businesses and residents

ACT for Education was created by the Monroe County Superintendent’s Public Education Advocacy Committee (MCSPEAC).
