In today’s Arkansas Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation Commission meeting, $77 million were allocated to public schools across the state. Southside School District was fortunate enough to receive over $22 million of the allocation. The projects approved involve additions at the elementary, middle school, junior high and a large addition at high school that includes a cafeteria for grades 7-12. The high school addition will also provide new space for students involved in agriculture, art, band, family & consumer science, and physical education. Stay tuned for more details on the expansions.
It’s a great day to be a Southerner!
