Rio Rancho schools ask judge to rule on PED decision


The Rio Rancho School board is asking a judge to put an end to an order from the Public Education Department to divert funding from special ed. 

The district says it was ordered to divert 15 percent of its special education funding into early education services. 

The district says the PED made the decision based on inaccurate numbers. When they appealed, they say the state stood by the decision. 

They’re now asking a District Court judge to step in.
