School Districts Support Proposed Desegregation Agreement

LRSD, NLRSD boards voted unanimously to approve the plan.

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Little Rock School Board voted unanimously to approved the proposed desegregation agreement.

The district will get more than $37 million until June 2018.

School board members said they believe the district will be stronger after the money runs out.

Now that leaders know when the funding ends, they can plan for it.

"We will know where we are, more control of our situation and our plans.  We will know for certain, much more what our limitations are," said Board President Greg Adams.

The North Little Rock School Board also voted to support the proposed deal.

Superintendent Jerry Guess of the Pulaski County Special School District is expected to sign the agreement some time Friday.
