State asks Santa Fe schools to revisit closing plan (Listen)
(2010-08-12)
(KSFR) -
The head of New Mexico's Public Education Department is asking the Santa Fe School Board to take another look at their decision to consolidate three small elementary schools into one.

Dr. Susana Murphy has sent the board a letter asking them to reconsider the consolidation plan based on negative comments from the community and because of new information about the high cost of closing some schools and remodeling others.

School Board President Richard Polese says the board welcomes advice from the education department but they aren't taking steps to suspend the plan.
