The Arkansas City School District was a school district of Rohwer, unincorporated Desha County Arkansas. Its territory is now in the McGehee School District.

The district had two schools, Delta Elementary School and Delta High School.[1]

The district facility was located 12 miles (19 km) northeast of McGehee.[2]

History[edit]

In 2004 the Arkansas Legislature approved a law that forced school districts with fewer than 350 students apiece to consolidate with other districts.[3] Both the McGehee and Delta school districts petitioned the Arkansas Board of Education, asking for an annexation of Delta into McGehee. The board approved the annexation on April 26, 2004.[4] On July 1, 2004, the Delta Special School District and the Arkansas City School District were merged into the McGehee district.[5]
