Schools in The News today

Here's a look at The News' education coverage today:

  • Controversy continues to roil Hamburg, where 200 parents, community members and staffers cheered at the suggestion that a school board member resign from the Hamburg Central School Board during a meeting Wednesday.
  • The Buffalo School Board agreed to hire a lawyer Wednesday to defend board President Barbara Seals Nevergold against a petition for removal filed by fellow board member Carl Paladino.
  • A $3 million project to build a new gym at Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart will move forward again, with the school working out a parking plan to appease the Town of Amherst.
  • Celebrity chef Marco Suarez stopped at Frontier High School on Wednesday as the school unveiled a new Alaskan Pollack fillet sandwich as part of an effort to add more nutritious foods to the school lunch menu.
  • Tonawanda City School District won't build a new music wing at the Tonawanda High/Middle School building, but will still incorporate new music rooms into a capital project that has been scaled back because of cost.
