On September 29, the AR DOC is taking part in the inaugural “Day of Prayer for Arkansas Students.” Created by Act 902 of 2021, it is to be observed annually on the last Wednesday of September.
Governor Hutchinson shared, “On this Day of Prayer for Arkansas Students, I ask all Arkansans to pray, meditate, or otherwise reflect on success, health, and safety for our students, teachers, school administrators, and school districts. Prayer has been important in our nation’s history for times of strife and conflict to days of drought and days of plenty. Prayer remains important in this time as well.”
The Arkansas Correctional School District employees around 100 licensed teachers, administrators and support staff who are dedicated to educating hundreds of incarcerated individuals each year.
