Fayetteville Public Schools

The Salvation Army of NWA is partnering with Fayetteville Public Schools to help feed hungry students this summer. Officials hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning for its new Client-Choice Food Pantry at its Fayetteville location. For 11 weeks, Fayetteville Public School families who qualify for free or reduced lunches and signed up through the school district will be able to shop the pantry every Friday for free.

This winter, the Arkansas legislature passed a law requiring public school buses to be equipped with seat belts. The bill was later amended to accommodate district budgets. The law goes into effect in 2018, but this fall, Fayetteville Public Schools is running a fleet of buses equipped with belts, the first in the state to do so.

A little over 10 years ago, the Fayetteville School Board voted to renovate and expand the current high school instead of building a second one. In that time, the Bentonville School District built another high school, making Fayetteville one of the largest school districts in the area with one high school. Superintendent Matthew Wendt explains how he is planning to prepare the school for future growth.
