Three Saginaw Schools Could Close

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) -- A decision is expected Saturday on cost-cutting efforts for the Saginaw School District that could shut three schools including Saginaw High.

The Saginaw News reports ( ) the district's Board of Education met Wednesday and delayed a vote on whether to close three schools. About 300 people attended a three-hour meeting to hear information and speak about the district's plans.

Saginaw High, where the NBA's Draymond Green once played, is known as a basketball powerhouse. Under the plan, Saginaw High students would go to Arthur Hill High School. The combined high school would have a new name, new colors and a new mascot.

Plans being discussed also could close a middle school and an elementary school.

The district has until Monday to present a board-approved deficit elimination plan to the state.
