Nashville School Superintendent Doug Graham gave a program at Wednesday's Rotary club meeting. Enrollment is down by about fifty students this year. That has resulted in a $300,000 cut in funding. The district employs 275 people and has an 18 million dollar budget. One hundred and seventy five of the staff are licensed teachers. Graham talked about common core and said a lot of people are confused about it. Common Core is a set of standards and decisions are still made on the local level. Common Core does not take away cursive writing or multiplication tables as seen or heard on the news. Graham said a burden that will be placed on local school districts in the next couple of years will be teacher insurance.
The University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees, in a regularly scheduled meeting, ratified the appointment of Dr. Glen Lance to the UA Cossatot Board of Visitors.

Lance will serve on the Board of Visitors and represent the Nashville community. He is a member of Rotary and an Officer in the Army Reserves. Lance is married to Cynthia and they have three children, Kathleen, Jonathan, and Garrett and attend Sunset Church of Christ.
