Hundreds  gathered at the first Parent Assembly the District Parent Coordinating Council organized last Thursday at the Buffalo Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. But the accolades interim Superintendent Amber Dixon received were noticeable.
A few of the speakers and parents participating in the event recognized Dixon and  the congratulatory words came from Sam Radford VP of the DPCC, parents asking questions and Regent Bennett himself who commented, "hats off to Amber Dixon"  while a parent commented, "we appreciate having you as our superintendent." 
So when is the next serious discussion about the search for a new superintendent? Well, at the  Buffalo Board of Education meeting last week it's suppose to be in January.
