Buena Vista School District Could Reopen Doors Soon

SAGINAW (AP) – Saginaw County’s Buena Vista district soon could reopen its doors after the local school board approved a plan aimed at bringing the district out of its million-dollar deficit.

Reports say the Buena Vista Board of Education approved a deficit elimination plan Tuesday night, potentially ending a freeze on state dollars to the district.

Earlier Tuesday, Michigan schools Superintendent Mike Flanagan said that he’d seen a tentative deficit elimination plan and believes the state can approve it.

Flanagan called the district’s superintendent, Deborah Hunter-Harvill, after Tuesday night’s meeting and indicated that he would sign off on the plan. Students could be back in school as early as Friday.
