An Arizona school district serving a remote area of northern Arizona and southern Utah long dominated by a polygamist sect is no longer under state control.

The state Board of Education on Monday voted unanimously to end its receivership of the Colorado City Unified School District.

The state placed the district in receivership in late 2005 because of financial insolvency and mismanagement.

The board acted after being told those conditions no longer exist.
