Voters have forced a shake-up in two of Arkansas' largest school districts. In the Pulaski Special School District voters kicked two incumbents off the School Board and replaced them with two candidates supported by the Teachers' Union. Here are the unofficial results:

PCSSD BOARD OF DIRECTORS ZONE 4
GLORIA LAWRENCE 1,080 74.79%
(i) CHARLIE WOOD 364 25.21%

PCSSD BOARD OF DIRECTORS ZONE 5

(i) DANNY R. GILILLAND 367 41.61%

Both Gloria Lawrence and Tom Stuthard had the endorsement of the Pulaski Association of Classroom Teachers. The existing board voted 4 to 3 to decertify the teachers' union. Incumbents Wood and Gililland had voted against the union. Tuesday's election will tip the majority of the board in favor of the union.

There is also a shake-up in the Little Rock School Board. Voters rejected five-term incumbent Micheal Daugherty and elected Michael Nellums. Nellums is the principal at Mills University High in the Pulaski Special School District.

LRSD BOARD OF DIRECTORS ZONE 2
MICHAEL NELLUMS 371 57.79%
MIKE DAUGHERTY 271 42.21%
TOTAL 642 100%

In other school elections across the state, Conway residents have approved a 1.9 millage increase. The final vote shows almost 3,000 people voted for the increase which is meant to build a new elementary school on Old Military Road and new high school facilities.

In Harmony Grove, the board asked voters for a 2.4 millage increase to build a three million dollar elementary school addition but the voters turned it down, 52 percent to 48 percent.
