Kaaawa Elementary School will remain open.
The Board of Education voted unanimously Thursday to scrap a consolidation plan for the 150-student campus.
Schools superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi and a consolidation task force also opposed closing the school.
“We’re delighted,” said Brian Walsh, Kaaawa’s School Community Council chairman. “This is the end of a long process. It’s been going on for over a year and a half.”
Kaaawa was one of a number of schools the Department of Education was eying for closure as a way to save money.
But so far, only two schools studied for consolidation have actually closed.
