Several PLA Schools Will Make Changes Through State Models

Several PLA Schools Will Make Changes Through State Models

Several Buffalo Public Schools, designated as Persistently Lowest Achieving (PLA), are making changes to fit State Department of Education guidelines that will net each school $2 million per year over 3 years in an effort to make each more successful and better serve its students.

At the April 13th board meeting, Superintendent Dr. James A. Williams and his staff presented the Buffalo Board of Education with their proposals of three types of transformations, as required by the State DOE.  The board agreed to the proposed changes (below), which will be submitted to the State Education Department for approval by May 2nd.

'Mirette' at BAVPA

'Mirette' at BAVPA

Set in 1890s Paris, “Mirette” tells of the most unusual friendship between a strong-willed ten year old girl and a jaded tightrope walker. Young Mirette is delighted when she discovers her mother’s grumpy new boarder is none other than the Great Bellini, whose glorious tight-rope-walking days were cut short when he lost his nerve.

Demonstrating an innate talent for balancing, Mirette convinces the reluctant Bellini (against her mother’s wishes) to teach her his craft. But when Bellini, determined not to disappoint the girl, stages a comeback performance only to find himself paralyzed with fear, it is Mirette who must climb the wire and help him regain his courage.

I have been going to Mary Queen of Angels for seven years. Over the years at Mary Queen of Angels, the whole school is basically a second family to me.

My favorite activities are dancing, yoga, playing on the playground and sports. MQA is my favorite school that I have ever gone to!

Mary Queen of Angels is a family and faith-centered environment where I can learn something new every day.
