The state Superintendent has signed off on plans that would allow students to return to their classrooms in the Buena Vista school district.

According to WNEM, State Superintendent Mike Flanagan approved the release of state school aid funds. The Buena Vista school board also adopted a deficit elimination plan on Tuesday night the Flanagan was able to agree with.

The district hasn’t held class since May 3rd when it ran out of money. Flanagan said he “encourages the local school board, administration and staff to get the schools open as soon as possible for students.”

The Michigan Department of Education said they will release the state aid funds to Buena Vista beginning with the regularly scheduled payment on May 20th, which will allow the district to meet its May 24th payroll.

With this plan it also puts an end to the so-called Enhancement Skills Camps which would have focused on instruction for math, reading and writing for students in an alternative setting using federal and at-risk funding.
