Dollarway School District dodging distress


PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - "I don't blame our students for anything," Dollarway Superintendent Bobby Acklin said. After more than two years of state control, Superintendent Acklin said he is working hard with one main goal. He said, "We have to put student achievement first. To get the achievement level to where it's satisfactory. Not just with the state standards, but our standards."

The state voted to take over the Dollarway school district in June 2012 after it failed to meet standards for two consecutive years. "Not taking care of transcripts, attendance issues," Acklin explained.
