JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Nettleton school board has decided to keep the high school's Agriculture program after they revisited the original motion to eliminate it in the 2017-2018 school year.
According to Superintendent James Dunivan, they presented a new motion to keep the program Tuesday night after several residents showed concerns about shutting it down.
He said now, they will focus on looking at making a redesigned curriculum that would appeal to more students.
Currently, the program has 35 children in grades 8-12. Dunivan said he wants to grow that number in the future.
At the school board meeting, Dunivan said board members made a public plea asking parents to get involved in growing the interest for their children to partake in the program.
