Buffalo, NY (WKBW) The future of the Buffalo Public Schools could be decided in a meeting starting this afternoon at 4 p.m. at Buffalo City Hall.

At the special meeting, board members could vote on a new interim superintendent to replace exiting superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown. Board member Carl Paladino tells Eyewitness News the board will likely appoint Associate Superintendent Will Keresztes to serve in an interim capacity until July 1st. By that time, the board would name an interim superintendent for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The board is also expected to accept a resignation package for Dr. Pamela Brown, expected to be worth approximately $175,000. Brown announced her intention to leave the district in a news conference on May 16th.

At that conference Brown said, "due to the recent persistent and baseless actions for my suitability as the superintendent of the public schools, after much thought, I have determined it was in the best interest to reach an amicable decision with the school board."

The school board meeting begins this afternoon at 4 p.m. Eyewitness News will have the latest at 5 and 6, on social media, and at wkbw.com.
