NLRSD extending school by 72 minutes for snow days


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Some parents and students in North Little Rock are upset over the extended school days the district will implement to make up its seven snow days.

The decision to extend school days by an hour and twelve minutes came after the district issued a survey to parents and staff members.

It also took into account the 11 construction projects it plans on at least partially finishing by fall.

"We're four to five weeks behind schedule right now," said NLR assistant superintendent Beth Stuart.

Each school in the district will move its start time up by 12 minutes, and move its dismissal time back by an hour.

"All of us understand it's going to be a challenge," said Julie Drake, the district's parent involvement facilitator. Drake says she's heard complaints ranging from how will my kid eat to what about their after-school commitments.

Coach Brad Bolding requests public hearing


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - North Little Rock's former head football coach is once again requesting a public hearing.

Brad Bolding and his attorney officially filed an appeal letter on Friday. They're asking for a hearing before the school board to challenge the termination.

Bolding's first hearing was canceled last month because the school re-issued a new termination letter with more detailed allegations.

This is the result of recruiting allegations that North Little Rock turned themselves in to the AAA for involving a check written by the North Little Rock Foundation to Montez Peterson, the stepfather of NLR star athlete K.J. Hill.
