LRSD Aims To Connect With Hispanic Students And Parents

District held community meeting Monday night.
LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Monday night, Little Rock Superintendent Dr. Dexter Suggs aimed to connect with the district's Hispanic student and parent population.

He held a community meeting at the Mexican Consulate.

"We want to hear from you all," said Suggs.

Community members say meetings like this are important, because in February a federal agency recently launched an investigation surrounding alleged mistreatment of Hispanic students.

The case that is still under investigation at Halll High School.

Throughout the night, students and parents made their concerns known.

One of the main issues surround the plan to reformat the district's Reading Recovery program.

Dr. Suggs maintains his proposed changes will have a good impact.

"We are only servicing 13 of our 30 schools and that's unacceptable," said Suggs.

Dr. Suggs says he will make a full presentation Thursday, which he expects will draw plenty of interest.
