SANTA FE, NM (KRQE) – Lawmakers will hear a bill on Monday that would close schools if they perform below standards. Under Senate Bill 384, a school board or charter authority should close its schools if a petition signed by at least 50% of the parents whose students attend those schools request the closure.
They may request closure due to poor academic performance, ineffective teacher performance, or mismanagement. If the school closes, they will remain closed for the remainder of the school year until new reopening requirements, such as hiring new leaders and teachers, are established. The bill was introduced by Craig W. Brandt (R-Minority Whip).
