2018 ESSA School Index and Accountability At-A-Glance Reports Released on My School Info

On October 12, 2018, the Arkansas Department of Education released the 2018 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Index and Accountability At-A-Glance reports for public viewing on My School Info https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov.  The reports include data from the 2017-2018 school year, including 2018 ACT Aspire results.

Previously, school performance data was released in April in the year following administration of the statewide assessment. Based on stakeholder feedback, ADE shortened the timeline for the data release to allow schools to use the latest information to make data-driven decisions this school year. 

Both the 2018 ESSA School Index and Accountability At-A-Glance reports are available on ADE’s My School Info website: https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov. The Accountability At-A-Glance, a quick overview of each school’s state (letter grade) and federal accountability results, can be found on the My School Info page under the School Rating tab. For more details about each school’s data, please read the ESSA School Index report located under the Reports tab, which includes students’ weighted achievement and growth on state required assessments for grades three through 10, graduation rates, and school quality and student success indicators.

Earlier on September 21, 2018 -- the 2018 ESSA School Index and Accountability At-A-Glance reports were released via a Private (Secured) mode requiring log-on for My School Info. The final extended review period closed on October 5, 2018 for school districts.
