Important Title & Grant Meeting!


As teachers, parents, students, administrators, staff and members of the Buffalo community, you are important stakeholders in decision-making.  For this reason, you are invited to a series of meetings to discuss this year’s application for federal grant funding, also known as the District’s Consolidated Application.  These meetings are a chance to learn about the grants, how they have been used during the current school year, take part in a conversation about how they can be used for 2019-2020, and share your ideas for helping Buffalo Public Schools.  If you cannot attend the meetings in person, you can also attend them virtually through this live stream link: CLICK HERE
