The Commissioner of Education requires that the superintendent of each school district file a written statement of assurance with the Department as evidence that the school district for which the superintendent is responsible has complied with any or all statutory requirements. (A.C.A. § 6-15-202(f))
The Statement of Assurance must be filed with the Standards & Systems Support Unit by October 15 of each year. ADE is providing an extension of time to November 15, 2018.
The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) will provide monthly emails to superintendents and principals regarding accreditation. Please contact the Standards & Systems Support Unit for assistance.
For additional information, please review the Statement of Assurance Guidance, an updated list of expectations that provides links to Arkansas Code, amendments, and other supporting documents.
