Voters in the Farmington Municipal School District in Farmington, New Mexico, approved a $26 million bond measure Tuesday.

The school in the town of Rico is tiny. It’s not the size of the building that’s the problem-- it’s the low number of students in it. This year, there are only seven students enrolled at the school: three in preschool and four in elementary school. And since the schools receive a certain amount of funding from the state per student, the Dolores County School District is having trouble making ends meet.
