Superintendent Says No to Teacher Transfer Requests
News

BUFFALO, NY (WGRZ) -- This year nearly 600 Buffalo Public School teachers submitted requests to transfer to different schools. The Superintendent says no requests will be granted.

Calling this his toughest summer as a Superintendent, Dr. Williams wants stability in every school building.  When asked why he believes so many teachers want to transfer, Dr. Williams said there are many reasons.  "They want to move to another school and historically in this district they have moved around. Some don't want to be with principal X, Y, Z."

The district is also has to replace six principals who retired. The schools in need of principals are Hutch Tech, Montessori, Leonardo DaVinci and Schools 3, 54 and 65.

On Monday, the Superintendent will get a list of the top three candidates for each of the schools. He expects to have principals in place by August 18.
