School receives good numbers for AP, teachers honored for work

Paragould teachers Julia Sleeper (left) and Farrah Wilcox (right) were honored this week by Arkansas Department of Education Deputy Commissioner Ivy Pfeffer for work helping students in the district. Sleeper and Wilcox were recognized as high-impact teachers by the state.

The percentage of Paragould High School students doing well in advanced placement classes has far exceeded both national and state averages, and two local teachers were also honored this week for their work as high-impact teachers.

The Paragould School Board met Monday evening and received an update on AP programs from district coordinator Sarah Cooper.
