Buena Vista school district to use federal funds for 'summer camps'
The Buena Vista school district will try to run summer camps to help students affected by the sudden cancelation of classes for the balance of the school year.
That's one of the decisions today from a meeting of state and local education officials.
The shut-down will not stop eligible seniors from graduating, or other students from advancing to the next grade. The district in Saginaw County will try to run four- to six-week camps over the summer break to help students make up what they missed, and prepare for the coming school year.
The money for those camps will not come from the state, but from federal funds.
The Buena Vista district abruptly ceased operations earlier this month. That was after the state cut off aid payments because of debts owed by the district.
