Renewed talks over City Honors dispute

Apr 25, 2018

The Buffalo Public School District and Buffalo Teachers Federation will be meeting Monday, April 30th at 2 p.m., in an attempt to resolve an on-going dispute at City Honors School.

For  months the city school district has threatened to cut five and a half teaching jobs at City Honors to pay for 16-teacher aides.  A former agreement allows only City Honors teachers to be excused from non-teaching duties.

City Honors parents said all City Honor teachers should be allowed to vote on a new proposal that's reached this Monday.

Buffalo Schools general counsel Nate Kuzma tells WBFO News it's the district's "ultimate goal is to keep as many teachers in place" at City Honors. 

If both sides can not reach a new agreement deal Monday, it will go to arbitration Thursday, May 17th.
