BUFFALO, NY- A parents group in the Buffalo School District says the new leadership is far more open to discussion from parents than the previous administration.
District Parents Coordinating Council President Sam Radford made the comments following a meeting with Buffalo Public Schools Interim Superintendent Donald Ogilvie and School Board President James Sampson about how the community can help the district. .
"This is totally different from where we were at a year ago today. A year ago today, we were in a position where the Board of Education and the Superintendent were challenging whether we as parents had a right to be at the table," Radford said.
Last year the DPCC sued the Buffalo School District because they believed they were not involved in policy discussions.
"We now have a board president and a superintendent who is asking for parent input, partners with parents, partners with the community to kind of move us forward," Radford said.
