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. Act 696 of 2013 requires the state to also give a grade to schools. The 2013-2014 report cards are available at To learn more about what the grades mean, check out the video and handout below.
