In order to provide more options to parents and students with respect to where a child attends school, the Pocahontas School District is accepting students under the Arkansas Public School Choice Act. Per Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) guidelines, students must file a School Choice Application with the nonresident district on or before May 1, 2017 to attend school for the 2017-2018 school year. Applicants will be notified, by July 1, as to whether the student’s application has been approved or rejected.
Applications may be picked up at the administration office between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. If additional information is needed, please call 892-4573, ext. 5002.
