The Arkansas Department of Education is recommending that the Blytheville School District no longer be classified as being “in academic distress.”

That classification is given to individual schools and school districts when over a three year period 49% of their students score at or below proficiency in math and reading.  Proficiency is measured by state mandated testing.

Jeff Scroggins and Colorado will perform a concert of bluegrass music on Monday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, in downtown Paragould

New members are being recruited for the A-State University-Community Choir.  In November, this ensemble will perform selections from a very popular and well-known piece of choral music, Handel’s Messiah.  Concerts will be held in both Jonesboro and Blytheville.
