MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - The MISD School Board voted Monday night to close down Crockett Elementary next school year.

The board voted 5-2 in favor of closing the school due to several years of low academic performance.

Officials say students who attend Crockett this year will attend either Milam or DeZavala Elementary next school year.

Current teachers at Crockett will be reassigned to another school next year.
