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.
