Implementation is Underway

Since January 2019, the Little Rock Regional Chamber – in collaboration with the Little Rock, North Little Rock, Jacksonville North Pulaski and Pulaski County Special school districts – has been working with the help of Ford Next Generation Learning to transform the public high schools in Pulaski County into career-themed Academies.

Implementation of the Academies of Central Arkansas continues to move forward and launched in the Fall 2020 semester despite the challenging times our districts are facing with COVID-19
