BUILD Academy, a school on Buffalo's East Side that opened in 1969, was once the pride of the African-American community and a symbol in its fight for quality education. But in October, BUILD was one of only two schools in the state ordered to be taken over by a receiver next year in an effort to turn things around, after years of poor academic performance.
