Two administators have potential to get their jobs back


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Two administrators placed on unpaid leave from Buffalo Public Schools for not having proper certifications now have a chance to get their jobs back.

Yamilette Williams and Faith Alexander enrolled in a SUNY Oswego program in January to earn those credentials and applied to the State Education Department for “intern” certification in the meantime. Before that could be approved, the women were placed on unpaid leave for not being qualified.

Now Superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown says both have been issued “intern status” by the state, which could make the administrators eligible to return to the district payroll. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
