No Accountability Measures Or Expectations In Place For New Buffalo Schools Superintendent Kriner Cash

Once again we get an example of how accountability is only for the little people:

 The four-year employment contract for incoming Buffalo School Superintendent Kriner Cash makes him the highest paid leader of any major urban school district in the state, but does not lay out any specific performance expectations. Those will be set later. Moreover, Cash’s contract includes unusually specific communication procedures designed to prevent individual board members from telling him what to do without official board authorization.

Oh, the specific performance expectations will be set later.

How much later?

Undetermined performance evaluation: While some superintendent contracts provide explicit parameters for how a superintendent’s work will be judged, Cash’s contract includes only one sentence stating that the adoption of specific performance expectations and measures will be developed through a collaborative process by Sept. 30.

Hired first, performance expectations and measures later - this isn't sitting well with Crazy Carl Paladino:

Board member Carl Paladino, who served on the negotiating committee along with Sampson and board member Barbara Seals Nevergold, criticized the fact that Cash was given such a lengthy employment contract term without identifying specific performance goals. He was out of the country when the board approved Cash’s contract and said he attended only one meeting with the board’s negotiating team.

“There’s no standards set for this guy,” Paladino stated. “We’re telling him you’re employed for four years, and we’re not telling him what his job is.”

Silly Crazy Carl - expectations and accountability are for little people in the school district, not for the people who run it.

  1. We worked with the new state education commissioner to ensure that if your school makes demonstrable progress in the 2015–16 school year, it will not face further negative consequences or adverse actions.

    Everyone at the UFT knows that you are working hard to improve the lives of children in a school where the majority of students face significant challenges that must be addressed with a broad spectrum of supports. We will all be working to support both you and your school during the year ahead.

    If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your district or borough representative.

    We hope you are enjoying your summer and look forward to working with you and your school this coming school year.

    Sincerely,



    Michael Mulgrew

    Once again, it's about accountability for the teachers and none for politicians, parents and students. What doesn't make sense about this is that in order for the school to be on this list, it has to have been failing for the last decade, yet if you look at the teacher roster from back then there are very few teachers still around from that time period, meaning that newer teachers are being unfairly targeted for working in a bad school based on test results from subjects they may not even teach during a time when they weren't even teachers! This is so ridiculous, but this is what the do-nothing UFT gladly agreed to. Nobody should work in those "Out of Time" schools, since it is clear that it is career suicide and an unappreciated pain.
