Rumore not expected to sign evaluation agreement

The state Education Department may want BTF President Phil Rumore's signature on a new teacher evaluation plan by the end of the day, but it is not likely to get it.

Rumore shared that with WBFO and AM 970's Mark Leitner yesterday.

Protesting parents met with the union leader last night to hear his rationale.

Rumore told the group that he could not sign the agreement without the approval of union membership.

Buffalo Schools Interim Superintendent Amber Dixon says without the evaluation plan, the district stands to lose $5 million in funding this year and as much as $50 million in the coming years.
