More than 100 Claiborne Parish students who attend schools in the Junction City Arkansas School District will no longer be able to do so next school year.
Claiborne Parish School officials say the historical agreement is having a negative affect on the student population, causing rising health care and retirement benefits.
Junction City School officials say the latest decision is unfortunate.
"The bottom line is those 105 kids that want to attend school here, to attend their neighborhood school and they will no longer be able to," says Junction City School Superintendent Danny Thomas. "And that's why, to be quite honest, they're very upset."
It's estimated that Junction City will lose about $150,000 after the first year the Claiborne Parish students leave their district.
