Still no word on Saginaw schools decision

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

It's still not clear what will happen with Saginaw High School after another delay in the proceedings.

School officials met this weekend but delayed a vote on a proposed deficit elimination plan.

The district will meet again Tuesday after the state granted an extension to submit a plan.

Officials must submit a plan or lose nearly $5 million in state aid. The plan on the table would close Saginaw High School and two other schools.

More than 50 employees would also be cut. The district will receive a formal letter from the MDE on Monday that will outline a new deadline date.

Under the proposed plan, Saginaw High students would travel to Arthur Hill High School, along with the closure of an elementary school and middle school.

Those are not popular moves with parents.

The words "tradition" and "pride" were used often as parents addressed the board, pleading for another way out of the budget deficit Wednesday night.
