With just a few days left for Buffalo school officials to file plans for the low-achieving schools, and with budget issues looming for the next few weeks, another issue has been getting eclipsed: the imminent vacancy on the Board of Education.
Pamela Cahill announced in April that she would resign her Ferry District seat, effective at the end of May.
Interested in filling it?
To be eligible, you have to be a U.S. citizen who has never been convicted of a felony; a qualified voter in the city; a resident of Buffalo for the past three years; and a Ferry District resident for the past year.
Not sure whether you live in the Ferry District?
If you decide to throw your hat into the ring, send an e-mail or a letter of notification with attached biography, resume or vita to James Kane, Buffalo Public Schools, 801 City Hall, Buffalo, NY 14202; or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you get it in by the deadline, noon on Friday, May 13.
The board plans to interview applicants the following week.
