State Panel Backs Some Local Control for Little Rock Schools


September 24, 2019

LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas State Board of Education on Friday approved a plan to give limited local control to the Little Rock School District nearly five years after the state took over the district amid concerns about lagging student performance at some schools.

The panel approved a "proposed framework" for the future of the roughly 23,000-student district if it fails to meet the requirements for leaving state control in January. The board voted in January 2015 to take over the district, dismissing the school board and putting the superintendent under state supervision, over the academic performance at six of its 48 schools.
