GOVERNOR RICK SNYDER SAYS HIS ADMINISTRATION IS WORKING TO RESOLVE A FINANCIAL CRISIS THAT HAS SHUT DOWN CLASSES IN ONE MICHIGAN SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR 3 DAYS.   THE BUENA VISTA SCHOOL DISTRICT SAYS IT CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY ITS TEACHERS AND FAILED TO HOLD CLASSES THURSDAY FOR A THIRD STRAIGHT DAY.   SNYDER'S COMMENTS CAME AFTER DEMOCRATIC U.S. REP. DALE KILDEE OF FLINT CALLED ON THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR TO USE HIS AUTHORITY TO GET EMERGENCY FUNDS TO THE DISTRICT. THE STATE HAS BEEN WITHHOLDING AID TO RECOUP A PREVIOUS OVERPAYMENT.   SNYDER TOLD REPORTERS THURSDAY THAT ONE OPTION COULD BE TO SEND STUDENTS TO NEARBY SCHOOL DISTRICTS, THOUGH SNYDER SAYS THERE ARE SOME LEGAL CONSTRAINTS.   THE DISTRICT IS NEAR SAGINAW IN SAGINAW COUNTY'S BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, AND ITS SCHOOL BOARD MEETS THURSDAY EVENING.
