What the Expert Says:

In most states there tends to be a two-fold process for students in one state going to school across state lines to another state.

Two questions need to be answered:

1) Do the states involved have specific laws on this subject?
2) Does the receiving state (Arkansas) have room in the local school system?

The answer to both questions must be yes for your child to attend schools across state lines.
