POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - The Pocahontas School District has been approved for funding to build a new elementary school.

The school district applied for grant funding in 2017, after seeing major school growth.

The grant will provide partnership funding for the new K-4 building.

According to Superintendent Daryl Blaxton, the school board purchased a piece of land nearly 15 years ago, which will be the new site of the elementary building.
