Bill would give school boards power to reopen for in-person learning

Legislature

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – State legislators are hoping to let local school boards decide when they should re-open. A bipartisan bill being introduced at the Roundhouse would allow local school boards to let children go back to in-person learning.

It comes as vaccines are starting to be distributed as well as growing pressure from parents to resume class and sports. Governor Lujan Grisham is expected to veto the bill. However, earlier this week, she also teased a loosening of restrictions, which could undercut support for the bill as well.
