Superintendent Dr. James A. Williams Calls on District Parents to Send Children to School

Superintendent Emphasizes Attendance is Necessary for Success.

"I reiterate my appreciation for the time, energy and diversity of talent that I saw on display last night at the District Parent Coordinating Council meeting.

"There is a groundswell of passion for the Buffalo public schools to a level I haven’t experienced in the six years I’ve been here, and frankly, I welcome it. 

"All of us--the district, teachers, principals and parents--need to work together for the benefit of our children.  Let’s not forget why we’re here.

"The idea of a boycott on May 16th is a bad one.  It is misguided.  Our attendance is a problem to begin with and one of the key indicators as to why so many of our children are underachieving.  Parents are powerful; and the best thing they can do is to send their children to school every day.

"Keeping children out of school is not a solution to anything, and I urge parents to ignore the call for a boycott.  Taking a step backward is no way to go forward. Instead of putting energy into keeping our kids out of school, that energy should be directed to academics and achievement."
