Buffalo Schools, former charter spar over accounting of leftover money

By Jay Rey | Buffalo News | March 4, 2019

With the shutdown of Pinnacle Charter School in 2013, Buffalo Public Schools, from which Pinnacle received funds, claimed that Pinnacle did not turn over its assets as it was required to do by law upon its closing. BPS claimed that Pinnacle had $3.1 million in cash that it was supposed to return to BPS but that Pinnacle only returned $262,000 to the school system. Steven Polowitz, Esq. represented Pinnacle Charter Schools, explaining that the $262,000 that Pinnacle turned over to BPS along with the $1.1 million payment for operating expenses it paid after finding out the school would be shut down was the correct amount.
