Jonesboro is surrounded by many school districts, and now another one is adding FOOTBALL to its sports opportunites. And a football team means a band and cheerleaders. And more competition for Northeast Arkansas!!! Starting with the 2008-2009 school year, Brookland will begin phasing in a football team, much the way that the Valley View District phased in their team. Brookland Schools are growing as Brookland is centrally located between Joneboro and Paragould, making it an ideal place to live. Many homes located in Jonesboro are actually in the Brookland District. And southerners do love football, so we're all excited about having another team to cheer for!
