Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) The Buffalo School Board went into Executive Session just before 10 p.m. Wednesday with a big question still unanswered: what will happen to two top district administrators recently placed on unpaid leave?

Last week Dr. Yamilette Williams and Dr. Faith Morrison-Alexander were placed on leave without pay.

Williams, the district's Chief of Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction and Morrison-Alexander, Chief of Leadership, were apparently both not certified to be district-level employees, according to the State Department of Education.

Superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown said the women have done a good job are working toward getting the right certification. But it's unclear if that will be enough.

"Certainly they came to us with equivalent certification from the states where they had previously worked, so there was every reason to believe that they would be eligible," said Brown.

Park District School Board Member Carl Paladino was the one who first brought the issue to light.
