Barbara Warren will be superintendent of the state-run Dollarway and Pine Bluff school districts for the 2020-2021 school year, Education Secretary Johnny Key said Friday.
Warren is the state-appointed superintendent of the Dollarway district.
She fills a vacancy that has developed in the Pine Bluff district. Jeremy Owoh, the state-appointed superintendent of the Pine Bluff district, is leaving at the end of next month to become a deputy superintendent in the Little Rock School District.
Key said students and parents in Pine Bluff and Dollarway should not anticipate changes in day-to-day operations at either district. Both districts operate under the jurisdiction of the state. They have no locally elected School Boards.
