Buffalo Student Transfer Plan Approved

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Buffalo Schools Superintendent Pamela Brown announced prior to tonight's committee meetings at City Hall that the State Education Department has approved the District's Public School Choice Corrective Action Plan.

The plan deals with the transfer of Students from failing schools in to schools in good standing.

2,110 students will be moved to better performing schools. "We did not have enough seats in the past, and the plan positions us to have enough seats to accommodate that plan," says Will Karesztes.

That plan includes a more aggressive timeline for transferring the affected students. "It was condensed to a one year plan, so most of the activities are going on to free up seats for next year," says Karesztes, who mentions the plan was originally a three year plan.
