At the end of a four-hour contentious Board of Education meeting, we are pleased to tell you that BENNETT WILL NOT BECOME A CHARTER SCHOOL. IT WILL REMAIN A BUFFALO PUBLIC SCHOOL
Here is what will happen at the school:
No 9th or 10th grade students will be enrolled in the current Bennett High School. Our 11th and 12th graders will remain until their graduation.
in September of 2015, Middle Early College, an existing Buffalo School in need of a new, larger location, will move to Bennett.
The Bennett Alumni Proposal has an early college component. The Superintendent recommended that during 2015-2016 work be done to blend the best aspects of both programs—Middle Early College and the Bennett Alumni Proposal. Based on the combination of the two, the new Bennett Middle College would open in September 2016.
