      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.
