Two Buffalo Schools Administrators Placed on Leave
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - Buffalo School Superintendent Pamela Brown is taking a pro-active stance after being made aware that two high-level Buffalo school administrators may not be qualified for the positions they hold.
In a statement late last night, Brown said it has "come to her attention that there are two individuals whose certifications are in question."
Until the questions are resolved, Brown said the two administrators have been placed on leave status.
The two administrators are Yamilette Williams, Chief of Curriculum and Faith Morrison-Alexander, the district's chief of school leadership. Both are said to have conditional certificates to serve as school principals, not as district-wide administrators.
School Board member Carl Paladino brought the qualification issue to the school board's attention and had already started motions to remove the two individuals.
Below is the statement released by Brown Thursday night:
It has come to our attention that there are two individuals whose certifications are in question. Until those questions are resolved, I, as the Superintendent, have determined that it is in the best interest of the District to place them in a leave status.
This is not to be interpreted as a disciplinary action. It is an appropriate action for a school district to take in a situation such as this.
