Schools in The News today

Here's a look at education stories in The News today:

  • The president of the Hamburg school board urged his colleagues to "stop this war" and end what he called a "crazy witch hunt" that has divided the board for months.
  • A Buffalo school administrator who was ousted last week said she doesn't know why Superintendent Pamela Brown sought her removal last week, but was ready to go. Meanwhile, state representatives said concerns raised last week about instruction at Lafayette and Bennett high schools were "not the responsibility of one person."
  • The first class of Say Yes Buffalo Public School graduates are in college, and more than half of those eligible for the scholarship program are attending a partnering college and receiving fully covered tuition benefits.
  • Enrollment at Williamsville Central Schools will continue to fall over the next five years, but the high schools will see more students as several large middle school classes move up.
  • The fate of three Cheektowaga Central High School teachers who police say communicated with a student jailed on manslaughter charges remains unresolved.
