Oak Park, Southeast schools to close

The Pine Bluff School Board of Directors approved a motion Tuesday to close Oak Park Elementary School and Southeast Middle School at the end of the current academic year because of declining enrollment and a subsequent drop in funding.

Correction

An article published Wednesday about the Pine Bluff School Board of Directors voting to close Oak Park Elementary School and Southeast Middle School incorrectly reported board member Andrea Roaf-Little’s vote. She voted for the closures.
