Task force votes to keep west Molokai school open

MAUNALOA, Molokai (HawaiiNewsNow) -It looks like a Molokai elementary school will stay open. This week a task force studying possible consolidation of Maunaloa School voted not to close it.

The state was considering it, as enrollment is about 70 students and is expected to drop, but the closest elementary schools are more than 15 miles away. The task force's vote now goes to the Board of Education.
