Buffalo school superintendent Cash to get his report card

Buffalo Superintendent Kriner Cash gets to grade himself Wednesday – and then find out if his bosses agree.

Ten months into his tenure, Cash will present a self-evaluation to board members at 4 p.m. in City Hall Room 801.

The evaluation comes at a critical time. The School Board that hired him gives way to a new board elected in May.

Board members Sharon Belton-Cottman and Barbara Seals Nevergold have been vocal about completing a formal review of Cash before the new board is seated Friday, and while the members who have worked with Cash are still around.

The most recent superintendent assessment was done for Pamela C. Brown, who worked for the district from June 2012 until June 2014, when she resigned under pressure. Since then, three superintendents have served on an interim basis before Cash was hired in August. In a Buffalo News survey completed by the board’s six district members before the election, the new superintendent got generally good reviews.
