Buena Vista fails to pay teachers, after all the controversy

It was a payless payday after all, for teachers in the Buena Vista School District on Friday.

After a two-week shutdown of the district, teachers returned to the job on Monday.

State officials had said they would oversee how the troubled district spent its state aid.

David Crim is with the Michigan Education Association.

"Well, apparently they didn't sit in the payroll office and make sure they made the checks out to the 28 teachers who spent the week teaching their students," Crim told Michigan Radio late Friday afternoon.

State officials had withheld aid because the district had taken state money for a program the district had eliminated.

The state agreed to reinstate the aid after the district adopted a new deficit elimination plan.
