Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          May 20, 2021


Subject:     Update – District Breach Resources, APPR Legislation

District Data Breach Resources
Here is a list of some resources that are available for you to check (Click Here). They were supplied by NYSUT and will be added to as more are identified.


We are also pursuing legal actions in relation to the attack. We will update you as they are filed. Some may be class actions based on individual issues.

APPR Legislation
The legislation we sought your assistance with that would eliminate the APPR for this school year (2020-2021) has, with your help, passed the New York State Assembly yesterday. It is now on its way to the Governor who hopefully will sign it today. As you know, it had already passed the New York State Senate.


It will eliminate the use of the APPR (2020-2021) for tenured/contract and probationary teachers.

Please stay well. Take no chances.
