Buffalo News reported this morning the Buffalo Public Schools, " with high student absenteeism, low graduation rates and underperforming schools, the idea of cutting ties sooner (with Superintentend James A. Williams)  has persisted. 
 "What I'm hearing from the board is, having the discussion now makes much more sense than waiting a year," said Ralph R. Hernandez, board president, who called the special meeting at noon today.  Hernandez said he had been notified that at least five board members would attend today's meeting, creating a quorum.
