The people running the Muskegon Heights school district claim that 6 companies turned in proposals by yesterday afternoon's deadline  to operate the schools. 

But WOOD TV reports that the school district and even the state government claim not know who those six are.   And will not know until "sometime next week."

Reporter Danni Carlson says there was one citizens group that did apply, headed up by former lawmaker Mary Winter. 

Winter said the adults "owe it to the next generation" to have school for them but her citizens group apparently is not interested in administrating the school district. And Danni reports the "bid" was more of a "petition" signed by 26 people.

Muskegon Heights is under the gun to have an administration company hired and working by the first of July.
