School Cant Afford To Run Classes Or Pay Staff

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan school district that says it can't afford to pay its teachers has decided to lay off employees and canceled classes for the day.

The Buena Vista School District, located just outside of Saginaw, said in a posting on its website that school is closed Tuesday and a community meeting is Tuesday night. The Michigan Education Association says the district's board voted Monday night to lay off employees.

Buena Vista Education Association President Joe Ann Nash said in a telephone news conference Monday that the district's 27 teachers would work this week in the hopes that the state and the school district can come up with a plan to keep classes in operation.

The district announced last week that it won't be able to make payroll on May 24.
