The Star City School District is now accepting applications for students wishing to participate in the School Choice Program. School Choice Act 560 of 2015 is the program authorized by the Arkansas General Assembly that allows parents to apply for their child’s admission to participating school districts other than the one in which they reside.
The Star City School District has agreed to accept eligible students from other school districts under the School Choice Program during the 2021-2022 school year. Application forms are available at the Star City School District Administration Building, 400 E. Arkansas St, or online at starcityschools.org/page/school-choice. Applications for the 2021-2022 school year must be received on or before May 1, 2021, to be considered eligible for the coming school year. Applications should be turned in to the non-resident district which shall notify the resident district of the filing of the application.
Applicants will be notified of their acceptance or rejection by July 1st, 2021. Students who reside out of state or who are currently expelled from school for a drug or weapon violation are not eligible for participation.
