Saginaw school board members will try again this week to craft a deficit elimination plan
Saginaw school board members will meet again Tuesday to discuss how to deal with the district’s multi-million dollar deficit.
Saginaw school board members have met three times in the past week to hash out a deficit elimination plan.
The most recent proposal called for laying off employees and closing three schools, including Saginaw High School.
Parents and students have attacked the plan and the board for considering it.
Late last week, the state Department of Education agreed to give the district more time to come up with an acceptable deficit elimination plan. Without a new plan, the state is threatening to withhold the district’s February state aid payment.
