Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          June 1, 2023 


Subject:    Updates

Retro Pay
Retro pay will be in a separate check. The District is working on the payments.


As soon as we receive more information, it will be forwarded to you.

The District is aware that there was a problem resulting in teachers not receiving a “paystub” with your 10% bonus check. The “paystubs” are being sent out.

Seniority Lists
For some reason, seniority lists have been delayed. As soon as we receive them, you will be notified and they will be posted.


There will also be a document to complete if you believe your information/placement is incorrect.

Extended Pay Plan
Changes to your enrollment, direct deposit information, and contributions for the Extended Pay Plan can be made for next school year by completing a new enrollment card. If you would like a hard copy sent to you, please call the BTF office. Completed forms may be mailed back to the BTF office or delivered in person. Changes for next school year must be received by July 31, 2023.


The distribution dates for this summer are: July 14, July 28, August 11, and August 25 and the number of disbursements you will receive is based on the option you selected when you enrolled.


For those currently enrolled who are still receiving paper checks, now would be a good time to consider signing up for direct deposit for this summer. It is safe, secure, and convenient. Contact the BTF office to enroll in direct deposit.

Professional Learning Team Survey
Please complete the Professional Learning Team (PLT) Needs Assessment Survey - Elementary- Spring ‘23 or High School ‘23.


In order to provide the highest quality and broadest selection of professional learning opportunities for educators, it is important to have your input. This survey will provide the BPS Professional Learning Team with valuable information to guide decisions regarding future programming, resources, and the 2023-20234 BPS Professional Development Plan.


Your feedback will help inform programming for the 2023-24 school year.
