Local school districts eligible for AMI status on snow days

Several local school districts will experience changes when classes are cancelled due to winter weather. Mountain Home is among the districts approved by the Arkansas Department of Education of a new status known as Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI).

The AMI status would allow students to engage in learning during inclement weather or emergency days when conditions don't allow a school to be in session. On AMI days, students will be given digital and/or hard-copy content depending on the school they attend, and the district would not have to make up the day as a result. The status for each day will be determined by school administrators when necessary.

The local districts approved for AMI status in addition to Mountain Home include Cotter, Norfork, Flippin, Yellville-Summit, Ozark Mountain (Bruno-Pyatt, St. Joe and Western Grove), Viola, Salem, Izard County, Melbourne, Searcy County (Marshall and Leslie), Lead Hill, Bergman, Valley Springs, Omaha and Jasper.
