Lamar School District participates in the Arkansas Public School Choice Act 560 of 2015. Any parent residing outside the Lamar School District that desires to send their child to Lamar Schools beginning with the 2019-2020 school year may obtain an application in the superintendent’s office at 301 Elberta Street, Lamar, AR 72846. The application must be postmarked no later than May 1 of the year in which the pupil would begin the fall semester at the nonresident district. Parents are encouraged to have the application submitted as soon as possible as the new School Choice Law has a 3% cap limitation on the number of applications that can be accepted. Applications do not have to be resubmitted for any students currently attending Lamar Schools under the School Choice Act. This notice is prepared in accordance with Arkansas statute 6-18-227.
