Learn how you can help kids read!

Dear Community Stakeholder, Since becoming the superintendent of Marked Tree School District, I, along with other leaders and teachers in the district, have increased our efforts to improve grade-level reading abilities in our school.  Our principals, teachers, and students bought into the vision that was established…creating a community of readers. While there have been many initiatives that we hope will propel this vision forward, we are facing an obstacle.  Summertime is quickly approaching and we are working to create opportunities for our students to keep becoming better readers.  However, many of our students don’t have access to quality reading materials.  Did you know that students who live in poverty have three books per 100 students? We are working to overcome this terrible statistic. The Marked Tree Rotary Club is partnering with our district to create a book fair for our students.  By using donated books that have been lightly used, we are hoping to be able to give each student in our elementary books to take home that they can read over the summer. If your organization would be willing to help, we would love to receive your donation of books at Marked Tree School District, Unico Bank, First Baptist Church, or ERitter before April 11th. The most life changing gift you can give someone is the ability to read.  It is my sincere hope that your organization will do just that.


Rotary Summer Book Drive

If you have any books that you would like to donate for ages 12 and under, please bring them to Marked Tree School District, First Baptist Church, ERitter, or Unico Bank.  All books will be given to students to take home and read over the summer. Please help us build our community of readers!  Bring your books to these locations by April 12th!

Arkansas Public School Choice Act *2015

Marked Tree School District participates in the Arkansas Public School Choice Act of 2015. The Act allows parents to apply for admission for their child to attend a school in any district beyond the one in which the parent resides. The law established a numerical net maximum limit on school choice transfers each school year from a school district, less any school choice transfers into the school district, under this section of not more than three percent (3%) of the school district’s three-quarter average daily membership for the immediately preceding school year. If a student seeks to attend a school in a nonresident district, the student’s parent shall submit an application to the nonresident district. The application must be on a form approved by the Arkansas Department of Education. The application must be postmarked no later than May 1 of the year in which the pupil would begin the fall semester at the nonresident district. The School Choice Act does not require a school district to add teachers, staff, or classrooms, or in any way to exceed the requirements and standards established by existing law. Any parent residing outside the Marked Tree School District that desires to send their child to the Marked Tree School District beginning with the 2015-16 school year may obtain an application in the superintendent’s office located at 406 St. Francis Street. Applications do not have to be resubmitted for students currently attending Marked Tree Schools under the School Choice Act. This notice is prepared in accordance with the Arkansas Public School Choice Act of 2015.
