Buena Vista Schools Still Closed Due To Lack Of Funds, But The State May Step In [Video]
The Buena Vista School District hasn't held any classes since Tuesday, after the staff was let go Monday night due to lack of funds. There is now a ray of hope as the district is looking to the State of Michigan to step in.
The first step is to draw up a deficit reduction plan and submit it to the state, and the school board has revealed that plan at a board meeting last night.
In the meantime, there are no plans to open the schools doors for classes and parents are looking for alternatives for their children. The kids are able to go to Bridgeport summer school to make up for credits loss, but that idea is not sitting well with most students.
This is a very frustrating situation for everyone involved, and it keeps getting worse due to the lack of answers. The district has updated their website with some answers to their most frequently asked questions.
