Concerns about "distinguished educator" discussed at school board meeting tonight

From Buffalo News live coverage of meeting as bogged by Mary Pasciak.

Johnson: I feel that we need to discuss this more thoroughly with our commissioner and we're the guinea pig. We're the first to have a distinguished educator. We're also the first district to have a federal constraint over us as a focused district.

Mary Pasciak:  Putrino: We're bound by specific state regulations. Within those terms, our hands our somewhat tied. Along the lines of those regulations, our hands are somewhat bound. But we do have some discretion to negotiate. One of the areas we can negotiate is salary.
