Multiple sources close to the Buffalo Public School District Board of Education have confirmed that Associate Superintendent of Human Resources, Jamie Warren, was placed on paid leave today and escorted out of City Hall, "for her safety." Warren was a close confidant to former Superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash and former acting McKinley Principal Marck Abraham.
Dr. Cash resigned on March 2, 2022 after weeks of scrutiny and pressure over his placement and backing of Abraham as the acting Principal at McKinley H.S. For nearly four years the Buffalo Teacher's Federation, McKinley Teachers and several local media outlets notified Cash that Abraham was unfit and the school was spiraling downward drastically because of his (Abraham) incompetence. On February 9, 2022, at dismissal time, a McKinley student was stabbed multiple times and a security guard was shot. Cash's actions in placing Abraham in a position he had no business being placed in, which led to the unsafe conditions at McKinley, ultimately led to his (Cash's) demise.
Abraham has faced scrutiny in recent weeks as teachers have recently come forward and revealed that Abraham engaged in grade fraud and educational misconduct, while he served as acting principal at McKinley, in order to boost the McKinley graduation rate, which would also help to legitimize him as an educational "turnaround strategist" and motivational speaker.

There is unconfirmed speculation that Warren being placed on leave and escorted out of city hall was the result of evidence that has been discovered in recent weeks during the the Marck Abraham Grade fraud investigation. This speculation is not confirmed, "at this time."
