Live blog at 4 p.m.: New Buffalo school board to hold first meeting

In the days before its first business meeting, the new Buffalo school board majority has given us a sneak peak at what might be in store for evening.

That includes the likely installation of Donald Ogilvie as interim superintendent, and possibly some discussion on the board majority's vision for the future of the Buffalo schools. Board member Carl Paladino has also put forth several resolutions to tie up some loose ends at Bennett High School and the former Pinnacle Charter School.

The School Zone team expects this to be an eventful and significant meeting that will set the tone for the next few years in the Buffalo schools. Reporters Tiffany Lankes and Deidre Williams will be blogging live from the meeting. And you never know. Sandra Tan may even make a guest appearance for a full trifecta.

We'll start the discussion at 4 p.m., when board members are expected to discuss Ogilvie's contract in executive session. Feel free to bring us your questions and comments before the board begins its regular business meeting. The regular meeting agenda can be found here.
