Bryant School District voters to decide on millage increase

Posted: Updated:

Voters in the Bryant School District will go to the polls Tuesday, February 11th, to vote on whether to increase the millage by 4.7. mils.

If it passes, the money would pay for the construction of new schools, additional classroom space for some existing schools, and technology updates to name a few.

Bryant School District Director of Communications, Devin Sherrill, says the improvements are badly needed. "We are one of the fastest growing districts in the state of Arkansas," Sherrill said. "We see an increase on average of 250 students per year, and in five years, we're projected to have 1,500 and we need facilities."

Stan Landers, who opposes the tax said, "It's easy to say you're against kids, you know, when you don't vote for that. But there's already a lot of new schools and this is a big tax."

Ten polling sites will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Those sites are as follows: Avila Community Center, Bryant First Methodist Church, Centerpoint Church, Central Arkansas Church of Christ, Grace Church, Paron Fire Department, Salem United Methodist Church. Sardis United Methodist Church, Vimy Ridge Immanuel Baptist Church, and Woodland Hills Water Department.
