PBSD Superintendent Jennifer Barbaree urges supporters of the millage to get out and vote


Ahead of the Tuesday vote to increase the millage for the Pine Bluff School District to pay for a new high school, School District Superintendent Jennifer Barbaree appeared on the Oldies 1013 morning show Monday top urge supporters of the millage to get out and vote.

Opponents of the millage have contended that there is no guarantee that the state board of education will return the district to local control if the millage passes, and she was asked how she would respond to that.


If the millage passes, much of the money it generates will go to a new high school and Morning Show Host Greg Horne asked Barbaree for the “big picture” on the new school.


There will also be a “state of the art” multi-purpose gymnasium that will function as a safe room.

Barbaree also discussed some of the current buildings on the current campus.


She then went on to say this.
