Superintendent Williams to appoint another exempt employee amid teacher lay-offs

Uncertainty continues to grow as  teachers notified of pending lay-offs in specialized areas such as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes at City Honors, a premier high school in the Buffalo City School District threaten to challenge seniority rules in Albany, including transforming City Honors into a charter school.
Meanwhile, Superintendent James A. Williams continues to add to his exempt employees staff in central office amid the lay off notices sent out to teachers and teachers aides last week  that irked some school board members.  He said the position of executive director for restart and compliance overseeing the persistently lowest achieving schools including Lafayette under an educational partnership organization (EPO)  will be a union job according to Board President Lou Petrucci
Superintendent Williams appointed Florence Krieter, director of secondary schools, a union position,  working in the district turnaround schools office.
Krieter was a former  coordinator, later assistant principal and principal at Burgard High School until removed last year under federal guidelines for turnaround schools
