Because of the number of students enrolled, the Arab Board of Education is looking for an additional kindergarten teacher.

In an update to the BOE in a special called meeting Monday, Arab Superintendent John Mullins said the additional hire will be needed to maintain 18 children per class.

“We had 95 non-resident children wanting to attend kindergarten. Of those, 63 have paid the required fee set by the new policy and another five missed the well-publicized deadline,” he said. “They have put on a waiting list.”
