Another Michigan school district will be dissolved this week
Buena Vista schools will become the second district to be permanently dissolved under a new state law this week.
After Buena Vista shut down without warning in May, state legislators decided they needed an additional tool to deal with fiscal emergencies besides the emergency manager law.
The new law requires financially troubled districts to prove they have enough money to make it through an entire school year. If not, they can be dissolved. That happened to Inkster's school district last week.
Buena Vista is expected to be officially dissolved this week. Students will be enrolled in neighboring districts.
Correction: an earlier version of this story said the Buena Vista school district shut down suddenly in March; the correct month is May.
