The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is committed to improving family and community engagement across the state. We recognize that family members are students' first teachers and we must work together for all children to have the opportunity to be college, career, and community ready. For Arkansas to lead the nation in student-focused education, family engagement must be the foundation to learning in all schools.
Our Family Engagement team is working with the Council of Chief State School Officers to create a state framework for districts and schools. The State Board of Education Family Engagement Task Force is working with ADE’s internal team, external partners, and teachers on the Teacher Leader Advisory Group to create a coalition to develop this new framework. Please follow our progress:
