Local Schools Qualify For ADE Funds

ADE

The Arkansas Department of Education has announced that a total of nearly seven million dollars will be awarded to 175 schools that qualify for funds through the Arkansas School Recognition Program. Awards are based on information from the 2016-2017 school year.

25 area schools will share in the funds.

The Arkansas School Recognition Program provides financial awards to the top 10 percent of public schools that achieve high student performance on the state required assessments in grades three through 10 and the top 10 percent of public schools that achieve high student academic growth, which includes high school graduation rates where applicable.

Schools receiving recognition funds must establish a committee to determine the best use of the funds. The committee includes the principal, a teacher elected by the faculty, and a parent representative selected by the local Parent Teacher Association or another parental involvement group. Schools must use the funds for faculty and staff bonuses, educational equipment and materials, or personnel to assist with improving or maintaining student performance.
