Two Sacramento City Unified School District elementary campuses whose futures were in question may receive a reprieve, according to the district agenda for its Thursday school board meeting.

Board members had been slated to vote on the futures of both Tahoe and Mark Twain elementary schools, but according to the agenda, Superintendent Jonathan Raymond is recommending that both schools remain open.

Tahoe Elementary at 3110 60th St. has an enrollment of 315 students with a capacity of 822. Mark Twain Elementary at 4914 58th St. has an enrollment of 343 students with a capacity of 891, according to the district.

On Feb. 21, the board approved the closure of seven other elementary school sites because of declining student enrollment in the aging, urban district.
