Rochester interim superintendent collapses during meeting

Local News
RCSD Dan Lowengard

Interim Rochester City Schools Superintendent Daniel Lowengard collapsed Monday during a meeting, the head of the teacher’s association tells News 8.

RTA President Adam Urbanski says Lowengard was taken to the hospital for treatment after he collapsed during a meeting with principals and other admin staff. Urbanski says Lowengard was conscious when he was transported to the hospital.

News 8 has reached out to the district for further information on Lowengard’s status.

This is the second time Lowengard has 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.

Lowengard took over at the start of the month.

Right now, News 8 is working to learn more about his condition.
