Cheektowaga Central BoE meets, discusses after school alternatives

The Cheektowaga Central Board of Education began Tuesday’s meeting with comments regarding the success of the school in last weekend’s homecoming football game.

After recapping the overall successful homecoming weekend, they moved on to business. Motions were approved in the retirement of Principle Susan Cain. Another motion was approved in the matter of the resignation of school counselor Scott Manne, who worked at the Pine Hill Education Center

Other motions including requests to create positions for a special education teacher and three teacher aides were also approved.

The board spent a few minutes discussing whether to hold the After School Alternative Program at the building level instead of the district level.

“This program, at both high school and middle school would be for kids who are suspended short-term,” said Assistant Superintendent Mary Morris. “Rather than instruction at home or sending them to Pine Hill.

It would be three hours for the high school and two hours for the middle school and kids must arrive at 2:30 p.m. and transportation will be provided. The Board was unanimously in favor of this decision.
