HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After nearly two years of back and forth, there's now a decision on whether to consolidate two schools on Molokai.
The Board of Education decided against the consolidation at a meeting Friday night on Maui.
Back in 2008, the Department of Education initiated a study to see if Maunaloa and Kaunakakai Elementary schools should become one.
In May, a task force unanimously recommended that the schools remain separate.
Friday night, the Board of Education agreed.
