Nashville: A Divided Community
Nashville School Board Votes on a Hybrid Calendar
The Nashville School Board met Monday night for their regular monthly school board meeting.
The Nashville School District has recently erupted over a proposed school schedule change that would transition the school year from a traditional calendar to a hybrid one.
In town hall meetings last month stakeholders asked tough questions.
Last week Superintendent Doug Graham polled members of the community online to help the board members make a decision.
Two board members spoke to the stakeholders in attendance Monday night.
The motion was made to accept the recommended hybrid schedule. The motion passed in a 3-2 vote.
Listen to the school board discussion and vote here. No parents spoke at the meeting.
South Arkansas Reckoning has, however, received comment on background from numerous parents throughout the district.
Some have mentioned if the schedule changes passed, they would consider sending their students to Grace Christian School, which is housed inside the First Assembly of God Church in Nashville. That private school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2024.
South Arkansas Reckoning will continue to follow the Nashville Scrappers as they navigate through the many changes on the horizon.
