On September 9, 2013 the Arkansas State Board of Education approved the appointments of the individuals below to the Community Advisory Board for Pulaski County Special School District. The advisory board is serving in place of an elected board because PCSSD is under state control with a fiscal distress status. The panel’s responsibilities will include recommending action on personnel and student discipline to the education commissioner. Additionally, board members will prepare quarterly reports to the commissioner and state Education Board regarding the progress of the school district toward correcting issues that resulted in the fiscal-distress designation. The appointees, who serve at the pleasure of the state education commissioner, are volunteers nominated by lawmakers, educators, civic leaders and other individuals.
