As noted in our news coverage, including today's story, the Buffalo school district has 25 schools facing an outside takeover or "receivership" within the next one-to-two years. Most immediately, however, those same schools fall will first fall under the receivership authority of the district's superintendent.
Schools identified as "persistently struggling" have only one year under the superintendent's receivership authority to show "demonstrable progress" before the district is forced to name an outside individual, organization or school district to take over individual school operations as a receiver.
