The board in charge of Michigan's shuttered Buena Vista School District has asked the state to investigate whether to declare a financial emergency.
The Buena Vista school board approved the request at its Thursday night meeting. It's one step in a process that could lead to appointment of a state emergency financial manager.
There was no announcement of when classes might resume after three straight days without them.
In Lansing, Gov. Rick Snyder said Thursday that his administration is working to resolve the crisis.
Snyder's comments came after Democratic U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee of Flint called on the Republican governor to use his authority to obtain emergency funds. Michigan has withheld aid to recoup a previous overpayment.
The district is near Saginaw in Saginaw County's Buena Vista Township.
