Dr. Pamela Brown is in town moved into the superintendent office

Dr. Pamela Brown appointed superintendent of Buffalo Schools at last Wednesday's board meeting moved into the Super's office this week on the 7th floor of City Hall, while still negotiating her contract expected to be "signed, sealed and delivered" according to new School Board President Mary Ruth Morrow Kapsiak by next board meeting July 11.

Mary Pasciak Buffalo News blogger, described the new superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown as poised and very pleasant at the  20-minute interview with the press.  Dr. Brown has been hired as a consultant paid $800 daily as part of her transition plan, including expenses while she negotiates her contract with the district attorney.  Amber Dixon continues to run the district signing contracts though Dr. Brown initializes them.

There may be too many chefs in the kitchen---Commissioner John B. King, Jr. appointed a "distinguished educator" to the Buffalo Schools expected to be on board in August, serving as an ex-officio member of the Buffalo Board of Education as well. And Amber Dixon is still an interim superintendent irked the school board members in a  press interview last week in the Buffalo News when she alleged the board passed her over because "... this board has decided the job I did for [nine] months wasn’t adequate.” Board member Ralph Hernandez wanted to go on the record voting against the transition plan for Dr. Brown though he voted to appoint her superintendent of the Buffalo Schools.
