Public now has access to Buffalo Board of Education committee meetings

Thanks to Buffalo News reporters Brian Meyer and Mary Pasciak, the public now has access to the Buffalo Board of Education committee meetings Student Achievement, Educational Support, Executive Affairs, and Finance and Operations clandestinely held  before on  Wednesdays  opposite from the regular board meetings in City Hall.
Pasciak wrote, "the board and the administration have for years been aware of the lack of public access (I've even heard board members joke about it during meetings) but done nothing about it until now. Why?" 
And what about the committee meetings with the superintendent? When are these meetings held?  
The next Executive Affairs and Finance & Operations committee meetings, Wednesday,  March 16, Room 801, City Hall at 5 PM and 7 PM as listed on the district calendar. Next Buffalo Board of Education meeting is Wednesday, March 23, at 5 PM, in room 801, City Hall.
