Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - Turmoil continues in the Buffalo Public School District. Arguments continue over finding a replacement for Superintendent Pamela Brown.

After several meetings to discuss the future of the role of Buffalo's top educator, school board members had one thing set in stone -- a job description to post.

However, at Wednesday night's board meeting, members started arguing over that again. They eventually decided to go back to the drawing board and create a new draft of a job description.

Members of the incoming majority accuse some fellow members of slowing down the process.

"I think there's certain members of this board --it seems like this process is getting drawn out for whatever reason," Jay McCarthy told Eyewitness News.

However, current Board President, Dr. Barbara Seals Nevergold, said, "They don't want us to find a replacement because we will have usurped their authority -- so which do they want?"

It is still unknown when exactly Brown plans to submit her letter of resignation -- but she is expected to do so before July 1st. The incoming majority plans to fire Brown if she stays in that position.

The school board also planned to vote Martin Luther King Elementary School. However, the incoming majority plans to reverse that vote.
