SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico school district has announced it will restore 30 spots for students interested in an elementary summer program.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/2qJtFk8 ) the public school district said Friday that it will reallocated $40,000 so that some children from three schools where the K-3 Plus program was recently cut can still attend it at other sites.

The district has also teamed up with the Santa Fe Community Foundation to raise money to fund an alternative summer school program for students from the fourth school where the program was also eliminated.

The district cut the program from four schools because of reduced state funding. K-3 Plus gives participants an additional 25 school days. About 1,000 students took part in the program last year.
