Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - By Friday evening, the Buffalo Public School District must fix the turn-around plan for East and Lafayette High Schools.

District officials will travel to Albany to meet with State Education Commissioner John King.

In a letter to Superintendent Pamela Brown, King said Buffalo must correct more than 20-errors in its plan for the failing schools.

King rejected the previous idea, even though Brown says the school district has complied with everything the state has requested.

Brown is one of the officials traveling to Albany to meet with King. However, in a controversial decision, Brown delayed the meeting by one day in order to stay in Buffalo and watch President Obama's speech at UB.

If the deadline is not submitted by deadline, King has threatened to shut down both East and Lafayette High Schools.

The deadline Friday evening at 5:00.
