FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Secretary of Education Johnny Key joined the Fort Smith Chamber members for a special virtual event.
The session gave an update on the Arkansas: Ready for Learning model, highlighting its vision and what to do in the case of COVID-19 breakouts in schools.
Key says the vision is to transform the state so Arkansas can lead the nation in student-focused education.
“We have to provide opportunities for students that find different career paths than what we did just 20-30 years ago and community engagement,” Key said.
Key said with planning and community support, the school districts will be able to overcome these challenges and have a successful school year.
