The head of New Mexico's Public Education Department has suspended an entire northern New Mexico school board.
A notice from Hannah Skandera cites several reasons to suspend the entire Questa school board, including meetings that were chaotic, police presence was required.
Members of the Questa school board have even engaged in fist fights. The report also said board members pressured former superintendents to fire people.
There were also violations of the Open Meetings Act, according to the report.
Board members can fight the suspension during a public hearing in November. Until then, the state will oversee the district.
The entire report is posted below.
