Arkadelphia Public School Superintendent Donnie Whitten has declined to release
information pertaining to a grievance submitted by several teachers.
In response to an FOIA submitted by the Siftings Herald, Whitten acknowledged that a grievance has been filed but declined to indicate the teachers or the school in question.
In a letter submitted to the Siftings, Whitten said "the documents contain information of an evaluative nature and deals with the job performance of a teacher."
Whitten said the district has requested clarification related to the case which is currently ongoing.
"The grievance is currently working its way through the process according to policy, and we hope to be able to resolve this matter using our process outlined in board policy," Whitten said.
