School district considers hiring emergency manager

BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- A Michigan school district is so strapped for cash it might not be able to finish out the school year.

The school board is now considering calling in an emergency manager to help fix their budget.

The Buena Vista Township school district has laid off teachers and canceled three days of class this week because it ran out of money. 

The district needs to submit a deficit elimination plan before it can get any state dollars.

"We're trying to find a way to get the students their education but do it so that they have a method for this education. We just don't seem to come up with one unless the state can give us some money," said a school official.

Parents are considering enrolling their kids in other local schools so they can finish out the school year.
