ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The Board of Education for Santa Fe Public Schools decided to keep three schools open.
E.J. Martinez, Acequia Madre and Nava elementary schools were on the chopping block.
Kate Noble, the president of the school board, said the district is trying to address several issues.
“Santa Fe has some structural issues with declining enrollment, aging school buildings,” she said.
Dozens of people packed the board meeting to try to persuade board members. Their efforts worked.
The board voted after 10 p.m. to keep the schools open.
