Report Card

Each year, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) publishes a Performance Report of the state’s schools. This online report provides information about each school, district and the state, including test performance, teacher qualification, retention, discipline and much more. It is designed to help open the lines of communication between schools, parents and the local community. 

The A-F grading scale is a widely accepted way to identify how well a student is performing in school, especially on tests and assignments. As of 2015, a school’s performance is evaluated using this same A-F grading scale. The Arkansas Legislature passed Act 696 in 2013. The law, A.C.A. § 6-15-2101 et. seq., requires the state to implement an A-F grading scale for schools.

The school letter grades for the 2014-15 school year were released April 15, 2016. To learn more about what the grades mean, check out the parent video and handout. The A-F Calculation and A-F Reporting videos provide more detailed information.
