SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Two local schools potentially on the chopping block are getting a once-over from state education officials on Monday.

They're on a list of 38 schools across the state that could be closed because of low academic performance.

If that happens they could be shut down by the end of June.

A petition on change.org has been signed by more than 500 supporters and calls for the schools to remain open.
