A capital improvements mill levy for a troubled northern New Mexico school district has failed.

The Las Vegas Optic reports a mill levy for Mora Public Schools was defeated last week by nearly two-thirds of those who returned their ballots from a mail-in special election.

The defeat follows a string of bad news surrounding the school district.

Last year, the Mora Schools Board of Education voted to fire Superintendent Ella Arellano after no school earned higher than a C grade from the state.

Former Superintendent Charles Trujillo also pleaded guilty to a felony charge for falsifying credentials.

In November, the Las Vegas Optic reported Interim Superintendent Carla Westbrook-Spaniel once was arrested for public intoxication and accused of leaving two preschool-age children alone while she went to a nightclub.
