Ed Law 316 establishes a Policy Board that governs each teacher center. The WNY Teacher Center has representatives from each of our component districts, the teachers' unions, a parent representative, a representative from higher education and a business rep. We also include a representative from a board of education of one of the participating districts. By law, the majority of the members must be teachers.
Our policy board meets on a regular monthly basis to guide the operations of the center including program selection, maintaining the budget, overseeing the hiring and evaluation of the staff and other issues pertinent to the operation of the center. The meetings are held on a rotating basis between the three member districts.
