Catherine Pegram

School board members in Bingham and Moscow postponed a decision that could shut down the area’s middle school. Superintendent Kenneth Smith says instead of voting last night on whether to close Quimby Middle School, board members decided they’d like to study the issue more.The board previously approved a plan to close the school next July, by a simple majorityBut under new school consolidation rules, two-thirds of the board now has to give the okay. Community members also have to approve it. Smith says the school board will probably talk about the issue, again, next month.
