Possible transportation funding change could benefit Arkansas school
The state of Arkansas will soon look at a proposal that could change how schools receive funding for their transportation programs. Currently, smaller schools like Highland receive about $320 per student enrolled in the district for the program. Superintendent Don Sharp said they cover about 326 square miles and have to drive on dirt roads. He said many of their students take the bus to and from school making it a vital part of their district.
