Williams now wants to resign rumor school board to negotiate a deal

The latest news on the merry-go-round circus like ordeal involving the options  to terminate  Superintendent James A. Williams is that he now wants to resign.  Previously he opted to retire....then the School Board decided to invoke  either the "no fault" or the "for cause" options in his contract to terminate him. But  now the Buffalo News published a story today on the Education Zone blog that  alleged  the School Board might allow Williams to stay on through September.
If the rumor is true, Super Williams gets to keep raking in $611 daily, $3,055 weekly or $18, 333 monthly, while he resigns. Yet, still to  receive his $110,000 six months pay even though he has been out of town more than one-third of the time from June 2010 through May 2011 and graduation rates declined, students in the 8th  and 7th grade had the worst  English proficiency scores and overall district performance described as "flat-lined" in the math and English Language Arts tests State Ed released this month.  The   Board of Education live blog meeting is today to consider terminating his contract.
