During the April 18 issue of the Lonoke Democrat it was reported in the Lonoke school board story that "After going into executive session, the board came back into regular meeting and approved the expulsion of a female middle school student for the remainder of the school year."

This sentence was intended to represent the first item discussed following executive session, not to influence readers thoughts on what was discussed during the closed meeting.

The executive session was held to discuss retirement, resignation and renewal of employee contracts. Also the names of Maria Ortiz and Gay Campbell and the Committed to Other Routes of Education (CORE) program was incorrectly spelled.
