When the new Buffalo Public Schools board holds its first big meeting Wednesday, the best clues to what the board will do are in two documents.

The first is a six-page summary called “A Vision for Buffalo Public Education.” Released last week by members of the new board majority, the plan outlines six steps aimed at a “transition to a robust portfolio of high performing schools that greatly increases the options available to parents and their children.”

The second is a six-page letter written by Donald A. Ogilvie, expected to be named superintendent of the Buffalo schools at Wednesday’s meeting. Ogilvie wrote the letter in 2010, a summary of a larger report assessing the Buffalo schools. The letter was considered so tough that then-Superintendent James A. Williams withheld the letter from the board. The state finally released it to the board.
