2022 School Report Card to be released to the public December 30, 2022

The Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released the 2022 School Report Card for private viewing on My School Info. The 2022 School Report Card will be available for public viewing on December 30, 2022. Please use the following link to access Report Card Review video: How to View Report Card.

The Arkansas School Report Card provides comprehensive data for each school, district, and the State of Arkansas. Information in the report card pulls from the certified cycle and graduation data submitted to DESE. Colored indicators reflect the current data status for each module. All modules will be completed by April 15, 2023.

Additional information about the Arkansas School Report Card can be accessed at the following link: Division of Elementary and Secondary Education - Offices - Public School Accountability - School Performance and Monitoring - Reporting.

The school reports provide a communication framework to encourage dialogue and inform decisions within each school community. School-level improvement plans and district support plans may be updated as schools and districts review the data. All stakeholders are encouraged to participate in these discussions. After exploring the School Report Card, please complete the survey to provide DESE with feedback and suggestions for improvement: School Report Card Survey (English or Spanish).

Draft Business Rules for the 2022 Statewide Report Card

To better communicate the source of data, the School Performance Office is seeking feedback on the first ever draft of the Business Rules for the 2022 Statewide Report Card. School personnel are encouraged to review the Draft Business Rules and submit any recommendations, questions, and clarifications to Louis Ferren at louis.ferren@ade.arkansas.gov by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 20, 2023.

Communication Toolkit

DESE has prepared a communications toolkit to provide resources to help school officials prepare as districts communicate information about the school’s accountability reports to students, parents, staff, media and communities. The toolkit includes:

Private View Access

To access the private view of the School Report Card, please go to myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov. Log in using State Active Directory credentials. The School Report Card can be found in two places: the Report Card button at the top of the My School Info homepage or on the Reports tab of a school or district report.

Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, and Principals can add up to 10 additional users from their districts and schools, respectively, by logging into the My School Info secured site.

It is important to note that all assessment, graduation, and cycle data that is reported has been certified, thus the purpose of this private review is NOT a corrections period. This review ensures the report card for each school and district is accurate and provides districts the opportunity to develop their communication plan for families and community members. Please report any suspected errors or concerns to ade.schmail@ade.arkansas.gov or call the School Performance Unit at 501-682-7339 before 4:00 pm on Wednesday, December 21, 2022.
