Multiple sources close to the Buffalo Public School District Board of Education have reported to "Marckabraham.com" that BPS Superintendent Kriner Cash and the district will reportedly part ways later today. The Board has scheduled a "special meeting" for 5 P.M. today to discuss "an unspecified personnel matter", in executive session. It is believed that it will be announced following the meeting that Cash is no longer employed by the district.
Cash came under fire after a student was stabbed multiple times and a security guard was shot on February 9, 2022 at McKinley H.S., following several years of violence at the school. For years the Buffalo Teachers Federation warned Cash that former acting McKinley Principal Marck Abraham was the root cause of the schools downward spiral since he (Abraham) replaced longtime principal Crystal Barton.

As a result of the attention given to McKinley in recent weeks, Abraham's actions have come under scrutiny. Teachers have come forward highlighting his mismanagement of the school and have also exposed the fact that he padded his own stats by outright changing teachers grades and pressuring teachers to change grades.

Abraham could face revocation of his NYS school district administrator license along with a multitude of other legal issues connected with his acts of subterfuge while serving as acting Principal of McKinley High School.
