The state Education Board has temporarily rejected the Bryant School District's effort to de-annex the former Paron district, saying it would prefer an alternative that didn't involve a state takeover.
De-annexation would move control of the ex-Paron district to the state. The Education Board voted today to table the proposal for 60 days. It also directed the Education Department and Bryant to develop an alternative.
Well, I suppose the State could decide to take Paron. Wouldn't that mean that the Bryant School District would have to return the consolidation money they received? I would assume that the Paron parents would then be suing the State instead of Bryant to get their school back. (Thanks Mark )
