Star City School District is a public school district headquartered in Star City, Arkansas, United States.[2] The district serves Star City and Grady and portions of Pine Bluff, Monticello, Grady, Gould, and Rison.

Star City School District encompasses 402.34 square miles (1,042.1 km2) of land in Lincoln and Cleveland counties.[3]

History[edit]

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

In 2004 the Arkansas Legislature approved a law that forced school districts with fewer than 350 students apiece to consolidate with other districts.[4] In May 2004 the Arkansas Board of Education voted unanimously to merge the Grady School District into the Star City district.[5] On July 1, 2004, the Grady School District was merged into the Star City district.[6]

Its schools include Jimmy Brown Elementary School,[7] Star City Middle School,[8] and Star City High School.[9]
