Southside Schools to receive over $22 million in state allocation; new cafeteria, school additions planned

Big things are in store for the Southside School District.

In Thursday’s Arkansas Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation Commission meeting, $77 million were allocated to public schools across the state.

And officials from the Southside School District report the district is on track to receive approximately $22,750,000 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, according to school officials.

The high school addition will also provide new space for students involved in agriculture, art, band, family and consumer science, and physical education.

Southside School representatives say more details on the expansions are forthcoming.
