CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — With day one on the horizon, Cheektowaga Central School District Superintendent Steven Wright says the district is “transitioning back to normal.”

Wright shared his impressions of the newly released COVID-19 guidelines for schools, which align with the CDC. In addition to that, he spoke on the district now having a full-time school resource officer. Prior to this, Wright says the district had a liason officer for approximately 15-20 years.

Staffing has been a big issue for schools across the country, but at Cheektowaga, Wright says they’ve been “pretty fortunate,” with a couple dozen new staff members coming aboard. The Superintendent even has a few more interviews to complete today.

Noting that some positions are harder to fill than others, Wright says the district is making progress.
