BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — During a meeting Wednesday night, the Buffalo Public Schools superintendent says he's hopeful that unified sports will be back in the district as early as next week.

This follows a call from several Buffalo Public Schools families to allow unified sports at the district.

A district spokesperson tells 7 Eyewitness News Senior Reporter Eileen Buckley that Section VI will, "try to find room on the schedule" for unified sports.

"If we hurry up and try to put this together, then we're going to make every effort to do it," says BPS Superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash during the meeting.

Superintendent Cash says he does have concerns regarding staffing and transportation for the program.

He further explained that he hopes to broaden the program for next year.

Four city schools; City Honors, Olmsted, Hutch Tech, and Middle College all participate in unified sports.
