RECRUITMENT BULLETIN #13-31 May 1, 2013
BUFFALO BOARD OF EDUCATION VACANCY
POSITION: CHIEF OF PUBLIC RELATIONS - EXEMPT
SALARY: BY CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT
Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) has begun a period of change that seeks to transform the district and its schools. With the appointment of Superintendent Pamela Brown and a significant level of local, state, and federal attention and investment, Buffalo has an incredible opportunity to ensure that all of its students graduate prepared to succeed in college or a well-paying career.
Currently, BPS has 58 schools serving approximately 34,000 students, of whom 79% qualify for free or reduced price lunch and 77% are students of color. Of the 58 schools in the district, 28 have been given “priority” status by the state and 16 more have been given “focus” status. Within the district, a sizable number of students do not meet state standards, and only about half of those who attend high school graduate with a diploma. Superintendent Brown is building a talented and committed leadership team to partner with her in moving BPS towards the ambitious goal of preparing all students for success.
Master’s Degree from an accredited college or university in Public or Business Administration, Public Relations, Communications or a closely related field and eight (8) years of full-time experience with progressive responsibilities including senior leadership in public or community relations in a large institution or educational setting.
NOTE: Verifiable part-time experience will be pro-rated to meet full-time experience requirements. Proof of all of the above must be presented at time of appointment.
APPLICATION: CANDIDATES FOR THIS POSITION SHOULD COMPLETE AN APPLICATION AVAILABLE ONLINE AT www.buffaloschools.org (Recruitment Bulletin number must be included on application).
APPOINTMENT: Appointments are subject to the review of the Board of Education upon the recommendation of the Superintendent following the approval of the City of Buffalo Civil Service Division. Personal interviews shall be scheduled where appropriate.
The Buffalo Board of Education is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
FINAL FILING DATE: Until position is filled.
Dr. Pamela C. Brown
Superintendent of Schools
