Star City School District is a public school district headquartered in Star City, Arkansas, United States.[2] The district serves Star City and Grady as well as multiple unincorporated areas.[3][4]

Star City School District encompasses 402.34 square miles (1,042.1 km2) of land in Lincoln and Cleveland counties.[5]

History[edit]

The school district was first established in 1918.[2]

On July 1, 1985, the Glendale School District consolidated into the Star City district.[6]

In 2004 the Arkansas Legislature approved a law that forced school districts with fewer than 350 students apiece to consolidate with other districts.[7] In May 2004 the Arkansas Board of Education voted unanimously to merge the Grady School District into the Star City district.[8] On July 1, 2004, the Grady School District was merged into the Star City district.[6]

Schools[edit]

Its schools include Jimmy Brown Elementary School,[9] Star City Middle School,[10] and Star City High School.[11]
