Two school districts have been granted temporary waivers from certain state licensing requirements for teachers . The school districts in Arkansas were unable to place a specifically qualified teacher into every classroom for every subject, which led to their request. A 2015 state law allows a public school district to seek any waivers granted to a charter school that has drawn students away from the district. Officials hope the changes will incentivize more teachers to relocate to Pine Bluff, where the school districts are located.
