November 3, 2016 - The Little Rock School District family embraced a theme at the beginning of this school year that is more important now than ever before – and that is “The Power of Us.” We are continuing our stakeholder meetings to get input on the budget. While no decisions have been made regarding possible school closures, the names of five schools that may be impacted by upcoming budget decisions were released: Carver, Franklin, Hamilton, Wilson, and Woodruff. It should be emphasized that no final decisions have been made regarding these sites.
Today, Superintendent Poore held a series of information meetings along with a news conference to update school and community leadership on current utilization of our existing facilities. Additionally, parents and staff of the impacted schools also received this information. Superintendent Poore has asked that we make the budget and facilities report available to all on the LRSD.Org web site.
Please remember these are draft documents that reflect a work in progress, and you still have time to share your input. Also, please make plans to attend zone meetings that will begin next week – those dates are listed below:
