Interim Rochester superintendent to return to work after collapse

Local News
RCSD Dan Lowengard

District officials expect interim Rochester Superintendent Daniel Lowengard to be discharged from the hospital on Wednesday after he fainted Monday during a meeting.

The district says Superintendent Lowengard is in good spirits and will return to work after his hospital stay.

Lowengard was taken to the hospital for treatment after he collapsed during a meeting with principals and other admin staff Monday afternoon.

It was the second time Lowengard had suffered a medical ailment while serving as interim superintendent with the district. In 2016, Lowengard suffered a stroke while on the job. He later resigned.

However, after making a full recovery, Lowengard once again agreed in December to lead the district after Barbara Deane-Williams stepped down from the position.
