August 2, 2018
Eureka Springs, Ark.
The Eureka Springs School District is turning a new page this year, introducing the American Reading Company (ARC) Literacy Lab curriculum to grades K-8.
Superintendent Bryan Pruitt said the curriculum cost $250,000, and Eureka Springs is the only school district in Arkansas to use the program.
“It is expensive. That may be the reason we’re the only school in Arkansas using it,” Pruitt said. “Test scores are important, but the most important thing is to make our kids excited about learning. We want to give them the best tools possible, and we felt like this company had it.”
