LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen ruled Wednesday the Little Rock School District must release it’s work-stoppage plan to the public ahead of a planned strike Thursday.
A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was filed earlier in the week by attorney, and Little Rock School District Parent, Ross Noland.
Noland alleged the public has a right to know if the schools will be properly staffed in the event of a work-stoppage.
LRSD attorneys claim the schools will be properly staffed, but there could be a threat to school safety if the document is released.
Judge Griffen ruled the school district needed to release the information by 5:30 Wednesday night, ahead of Thursday’s teacher strike.
