Dixon resigns from Buffalo School District

Amber Dixon's long career with the Buffalo School District is coming to an end following her Tuesday resignation.

Dixon spent most of the 2011-2012 school year as the district's interim school superintendent, but was passed over for the permanent position when the school board appointed Dr. Pamela Brown in July.

After 21 years with Buffalo schools, Dixon was under contract through next June at a salary of $109,000.

She told the Buffalo News that she didn't feel it was appropriate to be collecting a paycheck while seeking another job.  Dixon has interviewed locally and is exploring the possibility of working as a national education consultant.

Her resignation is effective at the end of August.
