GRAND FORKS, ND - The Grand Forks Air Force Base School Board nearly unanimously approved Tuesday to consolidate its schools, bringing an end to several years of discussion on the topic.

At a regular board meeting held at the very school that will be closed, Carl Ben Eielson Elementary School, four of five board members voted in favor of the consolidation. Member Richard McCorkle was absent.

Students at Carl Ben Eielson will move to Nathan F. Twining Elementary and Middle School and start the next school year there. The School Board voted on the consolidation in 2012 but the motion failed.
