DPCC Fighting for a Seat on Buffalo Public School Board
Although, it already may be a standing committee of the Buffalo Board of Education, and members unsuccessfully ran candidates for the School Board, still the District Parent Coordinating Council wants a non/voting appointment to the School Board.
The group had gained recognition under former Superintendent James Williams at times allotted more time to address the School Board, its power waned under former Superintendent Pamela Brown. And it has supported causes and groups some view as part of the overall movement to privatize the Buffalo Public Schools such as Buffalo ReformEd.
While, the group is viewed as aligned with the new majority bloc on the board, so for this reason, the idea of it having a non-voting member of the School Board the minority bloc on the Board may not support.
So, a standing committee focused on parents and their concerns appears to be how the DPCC may best be the way to represent parents.
