Read the full Civil Rights Project report about expanding and changing Buffalo's criteria-based schools

As noted in today's story, Gary Orfield and the Civil Rights Project of UCLA have released an 88 page study that would significantly alter the admissions criteria of City Honors, as well as Olmsted School 64, an elementary school; and Olmsted School 156, which serves middle- and high-school students.

The report also calls for the creation of a second City Honors School, as well as two other criteria-based schools, one additional high school and one additional elementary school.

Many school board members have already been briefed on the study, though a formal presentation will be made to the board at Wednesday night's board meeting at 5:30 p.m. in McKinley High School. Check back here on the School Zone blog for live coverage of that meeting, or follow me @BNschoolzone for live tweets.
