The Arkansas State Board of Education took a step to divide the Pulaski County Special School District Wednesday.

The board approved an amended version of a report recommending the cities of Sherwood and Maumelle form their own districts.  Western portions of Little Rock would move from the PCSSD to join the Little Rock School District.

PCCSD Superintendent Jerry Guess told board members he thinks the changes will lead to greater inequity in schools.
