The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), is requesting that school districts update their school directory information. This includes Education Service Cooperative Director, District Superintendent, school principals, and other school district personnel's information for the upcoming 24-25 school year.

It is imperative that the information is updated on a regular basis as it is used by several ADE-DESE Program Offices and other stakeholders to reach out with the latest information from the ADE.  Additionally, the information is used to cross-reference access for various ADE Educational Information Systems as listed below:

  1. My School Info | MSI
  2. LEA Insights and its various Modules | LEA - I
  3. ADE Grants Management System | ADE-GMS
  4. Federal Grant Management System | FGMS

The information is updated by a districts’ APSCN-SIS Cycle Coordinator using the ADE Statewide Information System (SIS) and resides on the LEA Profile module of the ADE SIS web application, which is used to certify Cycle 1 through Cycle 9 data submission. The update process is now cycle independent and can be updated anytime of the year.

The information for ADE SIS LEA Profile: Contact Person / School Personnel is updated on a daily basis and displayed on the ADE Data Center: School Personnel Directory (SPD) web tool.
