Live blog: Buffalo school board meeting Oct. 9

Tonight's meeting once again should be a long one. The meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. in the Buffalo Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. As noted in the last School Zone blog post, the school board's meeting agendas will now be publicly posted on the district's website, in advance, from now on.

Despite the decision by Cross & Joftus to withdraw its contract with the Buffalo school district, this matter is still likely to come up for some board discussion. There are a couple resolutions regarding the consulting company, for whom consultant Mary Guinn works, but they may now be moot. Other issues include: parent complaints about the district's student wellness policy, discussion of the reorganization, and a variety of resolutions from board member Carl Paladino.
