The Battle Creek Public Schools Board of Education last night decided to put off making a decision on a plan to close two schools.

Superintendent Dr. Linda Hicks recently presented a plan to close LaMora Park and Coburn Elementary.

On a 6-1 vote, the Board of Education decided at a meeting last night to hold off on the closures until at least May 18.
