White River Academy Moving

White River Academy

An Independence County school will soon have a new location in Batesville.

The White River Academy, Batesville’s alternative school currently in Cushman, is being moved to the former Batesville School District Administration building on Water Street.

Cushman is 20 minutes away from Batesville.

On Wednesday, the Arkansas Division for Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation posted their list of 200 buildings and properties owned by school districts that were unused or underutilized that could make them available for charter schools use under a new law.

White River Academy’s current campus has several unused buildings on that list.

Students are expected to begin attending school in the new building when they come back from Spring Break.   MORE
