Arkansas to receive $5.7M for school improvement

Arkansas is set to receive $5.7 million in federal funding for public school improvement as part of a national school improvement grants program.

According to the Associated Press, schools will need to apply for the funding with an idea of improvement in mind. There are four roads a school can take: replace the principal and hire some new staff, become a charter school, close and send the students to a better-performing school or replace the principal and revamp the curriculum.

Since the program’s redesign in 2009, Arkansas has received $51.8 million in federal money for school improvement.
