The opportunity for school choice deadline was May 1, 2022. Letters of acceptance have already been received by participating school choice families for the 22-23 school year. The statute set by the Arkansas General Assembly specifically sets the deadlines for when applications under school choice may be accepted and that the deadline has already passed and we, Barton School District, have no authority to override the deadlines. A.C.A 6-18-227. To clear up any confusion, just because a school is on Level 5, they still have to abide by the deadlines and dates set by the Arkansas General Assembly. The deadline has already passed for the 2022-2023 school year. Sorry for any inconvenience. GO BEARS!
