COVID-19 cases by school districts; Springdale 47 active cases; UARK 116


ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — School districts and universities in Arkansas have 857 active COVID-19 cases, according to the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) as of Monday, September 28. Most private schools do not report COVID-19 cases, if any, to the ADH.

Four-hundred-sixty active cases are in school districts and 397 are from colleges and universities across the state.


  • Springdale School District: 47
  • Little Rock School District: 37
  • Magnolia School District: 19
  • Jonesboro School District: 17
  • Clarksville School District: 14
  • Bentonville School District: 13
  • Lake Hamilton School District: 13
  • Rogers School District: 13


  • University of Arkansas, Fayetteville: 116
  • Arkansas Tech University, Russellville: 60
  • University of Central Ark. Conway: 54
  • Arkansas State University, Jonesboro: 29
  • Harding University, Searcy: 26

Meanwhile, KNWA/FOX24 checked to see if these numbers matched what’s being reported on school district’s dashboards.

There are inconsistencies.

One example, Bentonville Schools reported five active cases as of 5 p.m. Monday, September 28.

We plan to ask Governor Ada Hutchinson on Tuesday, September 29, about this during his weekly COVID-19 briefing.
