Buffalo teachers step case over Federal Court ruled
The Buffalo Teachers Federation President's Report of March 26, 2013, reported the eight-year-old step case battle is over as per the ruling of the Federal Court. The Buffalo City School District now has over $75 million dollars in its coffers as a result this favorable ruling. The district set aside this money in case the BTF prevailed in its 8-year battle, but they get to keep the money. So there shouldn't be any lay-offs of teachers for 2013-14. With the step case behind us now, it's time for contract negotiations to start again and the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) scheduled sessions for April 22 and 26.
