The Buena Vista Schools have been closed for more than a week now after running out of money to operate.  It's been a frustrating time for everyone involved, but last night brought some hope to the teachers, students and parents in the district.

Buena Vista approved a approved a debt elimination plan for the state, and Superintendent Deborah Hunter-Harvill is confident the state will more than likely approve this latest plan.  If the state approves the plan, that would mean help is coming and students could be back in class before the end of the week.

There are alternative plans in place though, in case the state does not respond with the much needed help.  The BV district has approved an enhancement skills camp to help students with core subjects, such as reading and math.
