District responding to questions on school turnaround plans to the state

The State Education Department this week sent out questions to the district regarding the turnaround plans they submitted earlier this month. Meanwhile, Regent Robert Bennett told  Buffalo News on Friday that the Buffalo Schools among the most dysfunctional worthy of a state takeover. His statements troubled some School Board members who responded, "that comes as a surprise," and was "ill-timed.
Also,  Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown scheduled a meeting with stakeholders to discuss the problems in the schools related to the turnaround plans on June 10th. And the School Board plans to submit their evaluation of Superintendent James A. Williams next week on whether to continue his contract that ends in 2014. Williams has been at the helm of the district since appointed in 2005.
