Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - The Superintendent of Buffalo Schools says he left Wednesday's Board of Education Meeting because he had to go to the bathroom and not because of some criticism he received. During the meeting, about 3 people were very critical of Superintendent Dr. James Williams. The criticism follows the decision to close Campus West School, a K-8th school located on the campus of Buffalo State College.

"I think about the comments and I think they were ridiculous," said Williams. "I don't understand the purpose of them and it was sort of embarrassing."

Thursday, Williams meet with parents to discuss the closure, where they agreed to move the majority of the students to the Grabiarz School of Excellence. The school is located on Lawn Avenue.
Most parents say they're happy with this recent decision.
