Weiner school board discussing annexation with Harrisburg

Weiner, AR (KAIT) - The Weiner School Board met at Noon Friday to discuss the annexation proposal with Harrisburg. After a short meeting the board decided to reconvene at 5:00pm.

The Harrisburg School Board voted Thursday night to an administrative annexation with Weiner. At Friday's meeting the discussion was about either merging with Harrisburg or rolling the dice with the Arkansas Department of Education.  In the proposal, one school board member will be from Weiner.  It's uncertain what would happen if the state decides the school district's fate.  Weiner has until Noon Monday to make a decision.
