The board for a struggling school district has voted to lay off nearly all of its teachers and staff amid uncertainty about whether classes will take place in the fall.
The Saginaw News reports the Board of Education for the Buena Vista School District near Saginaw on Tuesday approved layoffs for teachers effective Wednesday, the last day of school. Administrative staff will work through Friday.
School officials said the district will have about $2,000 as of July 5.
Board President Randy L. Jackson says the district still is making plans for fall classes. The board approved an application to request a $2.5 million loan from the state to help keep running.
The district had laid off teachers and closed for part of May because it said it couldn't make payroll.
