ROGERS -- Teachers will receive a $1,000 bonus under the 2017-18 budget the School Board approved Tuesday. The budget calls for spending $137 million, a 2 percent increase over the $134.3 million the School District spent in the 2016-17 academic year. Operating revenue is projected at $60,000 more than expenditures. That would leave the operating fund balance at $21.6 million, about 15.7 percent of the operating budget, at the end of the fiscal year on June 30.
Brent Leas won a second term on the Bentonville School Board on Tuesday, holding off challenger Amy Gillespie in what was a hotly contested race. Leas received 510 votes (72 percent) to Gillespie's 200 votes (28 percent), according to unofficial results from the Benton County Election Commission. Leas, who joined the board after running unopposed in 2012, earned another five-year term. He represents the board's Zone 2, which covers east Bella Vista.
ROGERS -- The projected cost of the School District's next elementary school is now $23.1 million, about $3 million more than what officials originally had estimated. Voters approved a 3.5-mill tax increase in May to help pay for two elementary schools and various improvements at existing buildings. The district had planned all along to put $2.5 million from its building fund toward the cost of the first new school, scheduled to open in August 2019.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
