Small school district faces possible changes

-A A +A
By Associated Press

LOVING — A proposal to close, consolidate or redistrict small school districts in New Mexico is weighing heavily on the minds of parents in Loving.
Schools Superintendent Kristina Baca, who strongly opposes the idea, said the proposal is on the table but is not a done deal.
However, fearing imminent closure, Baca said several parents have withdrawn children from Loving High School and re-enrolled them at Carlsbad High School.
The middle and elementary schools have not seen a shift in student population.
Baca said it’s her understanding school redistricting legislation is being drafted and will be proposed during the upcoming 60-day legislative session that begins Tuesday.
“The Government Restructuring Task Force has made the recommendation. The task force was formed by former Gov. Bill Richardson to explore ways to reduce the state’s budget shortfall,” Baca explained.
One area the task force considered was consolidation of small school districts. Baca said there are 89 school districts in New Mexico, and more than 60 percent are considered small.
