Pursuant to Arkansas Code Ann. §6-21-816, a school district may petition the Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation (Division) for a waiver of the two-year right of access period concerning the sale or lease of an unused or underutilized public school facility if the school district believes that a public charter school is not interested in leasing or purchasing the facility.

 Pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. §6-21-816(e), your organization may submit a written objection to the Division within thirty (30) days of receiving notification. The written objection must include:

 1. The name of the open-enrollment public charter school that is interested in leasing or purchasing the unused or underutilized public school facility; and

 2. A time frame, not exceeding one (1) year from the date of the objection, in which the open-enrollment public charter school intends to begin providing classroom instruction in the unused or underutilized public school facility.
