The Buffalo school district will hold two community meetings, starting today, to seek the public's opinion regarding the mandate from State Education Commissioner John B. King Jr. that two struggling high schools, East and Lafayette, partner with Erie 1 BOCES.
At last Thursday's board meeting, members discussed the possibility of Johns Hopkins University continuing to work with both schools and having BOCES provide vocational instruction. The board is expected to make a final decision on July 31.
Today's meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in East High School. The next meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in Lafayette High School. The News will cover both community meetings.
