ESEA Accountability Status


The U.S. Department of Education staff has reviewed and approved Arkansas’s “ESEA Flexibility Accountability Addendum." The addendum provides comprehensive information regarding the Arkansas’s system of differentiated recognition, accountability and support. It outlines the process for determining status of schools and districts based on expected performance gains for student achievement and the secondary indicators. ESEA Flexibility was approved by the U.S. Department of Education in 2012 and was amended July 10, 2013.
