A special thank to all the Little Rock School District principals who support students and staff each day!  You help keep our schools running smoothly and your leadership is invaluable.  We hope you know that you are appreciated not only this month, but the entire school year.  Thank you for your service. 

Here's a quote dedicated to principals - author unknown:

Use of Football Field at McClellanTemporarily Suspended While Turf Work is Completed

Photo of Caution Tape

October 5, 2017 - A renovation of the football field at McClellan High School occurred over the summer/early fall and the turf did not grow in as expected, leaving some patches and holes in the field.  As a result no sports activities have occurred on the field this academic school year.  The district has been working with partners to determine an acceptable solution. The safety of our student athletes remains a priority for LRSD, and after further assessment today, it was determined that the field conditions remain unacceptable.  We have, therefore, moved McClellan’s homecoming game against JA Fair on Friday night to Scott Field at Forest Heights STEM Academy, 5901 Evergreen.  We will continue to assess field conditions and determine the location of future games, if needed.

Updates will be posted to the LRSD website and via social media. 

 

Decreasing Absenteeism - Increasing Student Success

Photo of Baseline Principal Jonathan Crossley, other principals and vice principals

October 4, 2017 - Today, a training was held for selected schools for a campaign concerning chronic absenteeism. In short, the audience members— especially the principals—were extremely engaged! A trend emerged: we are all on the same page with the importance of this cause. Decreasing the number of chronically absent students in our buildings will inevitably increase student achievement. We want to do our best to engage all stakeholders—parents, students, community members, media, etc—in order to bring awareness and drive results.

October 2, 2017 - With 100 shovels in hands, the Little Rock School District (LRSD) and supporters broke ground for a new high school in southwest Little Rock Monday – the first high school built in LRSD in nearly 50 years.  The state-of-the-art high school campus, located at 9715 Mabelvale Pike, will encompass 400,000 square feet of academic and athletic space and is slated to open in the fall of 2020 to combined student populations from JA Fair and McClellan high schools.

Featuring large classrooms, shared collaboration spaces, simulation labs, virtual classroom technology and maker spaces, the school will strive to prepare students for the global stage through project-based learning and unique academic approaches.  The high school will accommodate 2,250 students, 9-12th grades, and will cost approximately $101 million to build, including contingency estimates.

In addition to an advanced 21st century learning environment, the new high school will feature visual and performing arts, along with a 1,200 seat auditorium, and comprehensive athletic facilities to support the student-athlete - that include an arena-sized gym, a combined football and soccer field, track and field facilities, baseball and softball fields, and tennis courts, to name a few.
