Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo Board of Education is delaying action on a decision of whether to extend the contract of Superintendent James Williams.

The contract expires June 30, 2011. The Board is required to make a decision by the end of this month.

After closed door meetings Wednesday, President Ralph Hernandez said the board is in nearly unanimous agreement in its support of Williams. Some members would like to hear from the public as part of Williams' evaluation.

Williams said he welcomes the idea, but is not in favor of including that input in his final evaluation.
