Saginaw, Mich. school district cancels classes, worries anticipating grads

SAGINAW, Mich. — A Michigan school district already laid off several teachers because it couldn't afford to pay them. As a result, classes have been canceled.

Seniors and parents are wondering how students will graduate this year.

The Buena Vista District in Saginaw saw its deficit jump from $50 thousand to more than $1 million.

Tuesday night over 100 parents, students and teachers packed the school board meeting demanding answers.

"They're missing a month of school. How is this gonna effect, you know, keeping a 4.0 [GPA]?" said Youlanda Belvin, a parent of one of the students at Buena Vista. "Will his grades drop? Will he be able to continue?"

Some teachers volunteered to work for free.

The superintendent says there's a 95 percent chance seniors will graduate.
