Information Systems Unit

The ADE Information Systems (IS) Unit is one of the core units of the Division of Research & Technology. The IS Unit builds sound, agile, and scalable education information systems solutions for the ADE and K-12 public schools, and provides information technology (IT) services to the agency.

The unit operates primarily through two portals: ADE Data Center and ADE Employees Intranet, including the range of applications hosted across its two virtualized IT data centers.

The ADE Data Center is a collection of data systems, data tools, and informational reports for educators, policymakers, teachers, parents, school districts, and anyone interested in official data from the ADE. This site is maintained by the ADE Division of Research & Technology, and most data is provided by Arkansas public school districts.
