Board reveals appointee's contract details

The Buffalo School Board delayed action Tuesday night on a contract for the district's new state-appointed distinguished educator.

That move followed board review of the contract for Judy Elliott, which calls for a pay rate of  $190-an-hour and $275-a-day in travel expenses.

An education consultant who lives in Florida, Elliott was named the district's distinguished educator in May by the state Education Department.

The appointment coincided with the state releasing million in federal dollars in education aid to Buffalo, money that had been delayed until approval was given to the district's turnaround plan for some of the city's weakest schools.
