NEW HARTFORD,CT (WFSB) -

A victory is being celebrated in the battle to keep a school from closing in New Hartford.

Bakerville Elementary will remain open for the 2016-2017 school year.

It was set to close at the end of this year but on Monday, the Board of Education voted to put money back into the budget to keep the school from closing.

The school has been open for almost 75 years.
