Special Masters Set February 9 Deadline for Report on School Funding

JANUARY 18, 2007 - Posted at 7:53 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Lawyers on both sides of the long-running Lake View school funding case say they hope to resolve their differences while the current Legislature is still in session.  That way lawmakers will have the chance to respond to findings by two special masters appointed to review Arkansas' work in addressing the school-funding issues.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and his attorneys met yesterday with lawyers representing four school districts in front of special masters Bradley Jesson and David Newborn.  The masters gave the attorneys until February to report any unresolved issues in the case.

Last month, the Rogers, Barton-Lexa, Little Rock, and Pulaski County Special school districts won an Arkansas Supreme Court decision to keep the case open until May.  The court then appointed the two masters to review the state's efforts.
