* SCHOOL HELP: The Education Department said today that Baseline Elementary in Little Rock would received $1.6 million in a federal school improvement gant renewable for five years. It competed for the money with plans to improve through curriculum changes, professional development and extended school time. This is a big deal for Baseline, one of the schools with below-par grades on which the state Board of Education made its decision to take over the entire Little Rock School Distrrict. It will have a new principal next school year. Other winners of grants were Bellepoint Alternative School in Fort Smith, $1 million, and Osceola High School, $453,000.
