School board to revisit stipends

The Arkadelphia Board of Education will hold its regular monthly meeting Tuesday, March 15. 

Following several Badger Pride recognitions, the school board will move on to three action items to discuss. 

The first is the revisiting of the school district’s stipend schedule. The school board in its February meeting talked at length about the proposed stipend schedule, ultimately deciding to take it under advisement.

A second item being considered is a list of policy updates.

The third and final action item on the table will be approval of the 2022-2023 school calendar.

Following department reports, Superintendent Karla Neathery will deliver her report, which includes information on an upcoming spelling bee at Perritt Primary School, the upcoming Arkadelphia Alliance and Chamber Banquet, the school district’s spring break dates and two advertisements: one for a billboard and the other a radio station.

The 6 p.m. meeting will be held in the upstairs conference room at Dawson Building 3, 700 Clinton St. School board meetings are open to the public.
