SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Two elementary schools could have to close after this academic year.

Last night, a closure committee recommended Cottonwood Heights and Mountview close its doors after this school year.

The Jordan School Board had originally wanted to just close one school. But after studying the issue closely they voted to shut down both of them.

The school board began considering closures in the district's northeast area back in 2003 after declining enrollments.

As of October, Cottonwood Heights was operating at 43-percent capacity with 280 students and Mountview was at 59-percent capacity with 377 students.

The Jordan School Board could make a final decision by March 8th. (Copyright 2005 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
