Plans to turnaround Buffalo Public Schools that the public hasn't seen - Part 2

UPDATED POST WITH DISTRICT POWERPOINT PRESENTATION.

Following up on my last blog post, here's a copy of the Buffalo school district's Comprehensive Improvement Plan, which was approved by the board in a 6-2 vote Wednesday. As with the district's Strategic Plan, the public didn't get to see this Wednesday.

The public also didn't get to see the individual School Comprehensive Education Plans, but I can't make them easily available to you. I just discovered that board members were given central, password-protected access to each of these electronic documents. There's a plan for every school, and each plan is dozens of pages long. Providing you access to thousands of pages of individual school plans is beyond my energy level right now.

However, here's a link to the district's PowerPoint presentation on the Strategic Plan and Superintendent Brown's central office reorganization. This presentation was made at the start of the meeting.

The Comprehensive Improvement Plan, which must be approved by the state every year because the Buffalo district is considered a troubled "Focus" district by the US Dept. of Education, was not included in Wednesday's agenda packet.
