The Rio Rancho school board may decide Monday night how to alleviate overcrowding problems at their largest elementary schools.
The school board will meet at 5:30 p.m. to discuss two options.
One suggestion is to stop accepting transfer students at the largest schools, like Maggie Cordova Elementary School.
More than 1,000 students are currently enrolled at Maggie Cordova, but Ernest Stapleton and Martin Luther King Jr. elementary schools aren't far behind in size.
Another available option is to build a kindergarten facility closer to Maggie Cordova.
Despite pressure from Rio Rancho parents to find a solution, the board could decide not to choose either option tonight, which would put them back at square one.
