SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - The local school board has delayed a vote that could have led to the closing of Saginaw High and some other facilities.

The Saginaw School District Board of Education got together Saturday, but took no action after a three-hour meeting that included a number of public comments and had hundreds in attendance.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/1bzUEis ) the board will next meet on Tuesday.

District leaders must submit a viable, revised deficit-elimination plan to the state or lose $4.8 million in February state aid payments.

Superintendent Carlton Jenkins has proposed closing Saginaw High School and two other schools and laying off 53 employees to save $4.6 million this year.

Alternate plans reviewed Saturday involved closing elementary schools and making Saginaw High and Arthur Hill High schools seventh- through 12th-grade buildings.
