To better assist schools with providing the best education possible, the Arkansas Department of Education is launching the Arkansas Comprehensive School Improvement Planning Statewide Field Test during the 2016-2017 year.
All Arkansas public and charter schools use the ACSIP model, as defined by Ark. Code Ann. § 6-15-419, to identify a school’s goals, instructional programs, and strategies toward meeting student needs. The statewide field test this school year continues to feature a process and software that opens the door for improvement at all schools and districts.
The process and program allows district and school leadership teams to collaborate to determine best practices and areas for improvement, in addition to developing strategies for meeting short-term and long-term goals. It also gives schools an opportunity to receive ooaching feedback from districts throughout the entire year. Providing the best education possible requires effort, collaboration and innovative strategies.
