The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) waiver that provided free meals to students due to the COVID-19 pandemic expired on June 30, 2022. This means that school meals will no longer automatically be free for everyone.

Did you know that it’s more than a meal? Free and Reduced lunch applications affect funding in many areas. All families are encouraged to complete the new meal benefit application to ensure continued funding to support ALL students in our district.

Qualifying for the meal benefit plan allows for two free ACT tests, a Waiver for College Admission Fees, and a Waiver for NCAA Clearinghouse.

Please submit an application to qualify for free/reduced meals at Bismarck School District during the 2022-2023 school year by clicking the following link: www.lunchapplication.com.

Once on the webpage, click "Apply Now", select "Arkansas" and "Bismarck School District", and then read the next page and click "Continue". Then, you will fill out the application entering your information. When finished, click "Submit". It will take about 5 minutes to complete the application process.

"We focus on creating personal and academic success for each child, because we recognize that we are not only creating learners, but our future leaders."

Welcome to

Bismarck School District

On behalf of the Board of Education, faculty, and staff, we invite you to visit us and discover the many advantages offered by our district.  We provide the opportunities of a large school within a smaller school environment.  Our students have access to some of the best educators and programs in Arkansas.  We focus on creating personal and academic success for each child, because we recognize that we are not only creating learners, but our future leaders.  Our accomplishments are significant, and they did not happen by chance.  They are the result of dedicated individuals who care deeply about the well-being of each and every individual and who are committed to excellence.  Our district is an extension of our wonderful community.  Through our work as a collaborative community, our students will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve at a high level.

SCHOOL CHOICE ANNOUNCEMENT

This is a public announcement.  Public School Choice in Arkansas allows students to attend a public school in a district other than the one in which they reside.  Applications for students in the following counties: Clark, Grant, Hot Spring, Pike, and Saline, (must be made by May 1, 2022 to qualify for provisions under the Arkansas Public School Choice Act of 2013.)

Pursuant to standards adopted by a non-resident school board, a non-resident district may reserve the right to accept and reject applicants based on capacity of programs, class, grade level, or school building.  Likewise, a non-resident district’s standards may provide for the rejection of an applicant based upon the submission of false or misleading information to the above listed request for information when that information directly impacts the legal qualifications of an applicant to transfer pursuant to the School Choice Act.  However, a non-resident district’s standards shall not include an applicant’s previous academic achievement, athletic or other extra-curricular ability, handicapping conditions, English proficiency level, or previous disciplinary proceedings, except that an expulsion from another district may be included pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. 6-18-510.  Priority will be given to applicants with siblings attending the district.  The non-resident district shall accept credits toward graduation that were awarded by another district and award a diploma to a non-resident applicant if the applicant meets the non-resident district’s graduation requirements. Applications must be postmarked or delivered to the Superintendent of Schools no later than May 1 for a child to be able to enroll for the fall semester.  Transfers shall be granted on a non-discriminatory basis.  Students who have been accepted and enrolled in previous years do not have to reapply as approved transfers remain valid for as long as the student attends that public school. 

Superintendents of both school districts must be notified by the parent of their school choice request.
