Wednesday, the Saginaw School Board may vote to sell the old Buena Vista high school to an out of state education company.   The sale would net about five million dollars.

Last week, the board decided against selling another building to a charter school.   District officials voted to demolish the building instead.   That decision drew criticism from the state charter school association.  Also, a public hearing this week may help determine if the district will close one of its two high schools.
