Buena Vista submits response to state education leaders

The Buena Vista School district submitted a response Sunday to the State's evaluation of the district.

The district had five days to submit a response following the state's evaluation that can be viewed here.

This past week, the Republican-led state House passed bills that would dissolve the financially-burdened school districts including Buena Vista.

The Inkster School District is also affected.

The Senate could take up the bill this week.

Meantime, Representative Stacy Irwin-Oakes is fighting for Buena Vista saying the legislation violates the Voting Rights Act.

Superintendent Deborah Hunter-Harvill tells NBC 25 she hopes to have a conversation with state education officials this week so she can inform community members about the fate of the district.

She says she hopes state leaders give the district another chance.
