Arkansas schools held in 'distress'

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 11:38 AM

The Arkansas state Board of Education is meeting today. So far, it has found the Lee County and Strong-Huttig school districts in academic distress and the Hughes district in fiscal distress.

I didn't see the meeting, but a spectator said the Board also gave the Covenant Keepers charter school at 8300 Geyer Springs Road in Little Rock a three-year renewal for grades 6-8, but it will close its high school. It's going to relocate to the former Dreamland charter school facility and report to the board on progress in October. Covenant Keepers was placed on probationary status last year after a financial audit.
