Every Student Succeeds Act: Arkansas State Plan
Arkansas Department of Education
This document reflects work that began prior to the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act. In 2015 the Arkansas Department of Education began engaging with stakeholders to determine how the Department could better support students, educators, school and district leaders, and communities in their efforts to improve student outcomes. The intention was to maximize the flexibility offered under No Child Left Behind to rethink the approach to accountability, moving from a compliance-focused system to one of support. The goal is to unleash the professionalism and creativity of educators to provide student-focused learning opportunities for all students. The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act provided an accelerated path for this goal to be realized. Programs included in the Consolidated State Plan are: (1) Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies (LEAs); (2) Title I, Part C: Education of Migratory Children; (3) Title I, Part D: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth who are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk; (4) Title II, Part A: Supporting Effective Instruction; (5) Title III, Part A, Subpart 1: English Language Acquisition and Language Enhancement; (6) Title IV, Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants; (7) Title IV, Part B: 21st Century Community Learning Centers; (8) Title V, Part B, Subpart 2: Rural and Low-Income School Program; and (9) Education for Homeless Children and Youth program, McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, Title VII, Subtitle B.
