— An Arkansas House panel is considering a proposal to change the criteria for determining when a school district is consolidated.

The House Education Committee is set to vote Tuesday on a bill that would change the formula for calculating the number of students in a school district for the purposes of consolidation.

School districts with fewer than 350 students are currently placed on the consolidation list.

The state determines the number of students by taking the average daily membership of the school district.

The proposed legislation calls for the state to include home-schooled students in its count.

The bill is sponsored by Democratic Rep. James Ratliff of Imboden.
