"The district counters it hasn't received the money and union officials were informed the scheduled payroll date is June 7."

 

Union officials say teachers at a struggling school district are not being paid, even though the state released money to the district to ensure it could make payroll.
The Michigan Education Association said Buena Vista School District didn't pay its teachers Friday, a payday. The district, meanwhile, counters it hasn't received the money and union officials were informed the scheduled payroll date is June 7.
The district in Saginaw County's Buena Vista Township laid off its 27 teachers and closed May 7 because it said it couldn't make payroll. The closure came after the state withheld aid to recoup overpaid funds.
Last week, the state agreed to release $400,000 so the district could reopen. Students were back in class Monday.
The union says teachers haven't been paid since May 10.
