Please note that we are only able to communicate with parents or guardians if the student has signed our Program Release form, granting us permission to openly discuss information regarding his or her participation in EMPOWER.
If you have specific information about your student that you think would be helpful, the best primary contact is the EMPOWER e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org . Your message will be forwarded to your student’s mentor, who may contact you for further details if needed. If you have the contact information for your student’s mentor, it is recommend that you contact them via e-mail. This is the most efficient way to reach them since his or her schedules may vary and they are adjunct employees who are not in the office every day.
If you have questions regarding your student’s progress, we recommend first discussing your concerns with your student. If after talking with your student, you still feel you need more information, you can contact the mentor (via e-mail, as described above) in order to encourage a more open dialogue between you and your student.
If you have an immediate concern about your student’s health or safety and/or it is after business hours, please contact RIT Public Safety’s emergency number at (585)475-3333.
