Memo Text

The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) will streamline the Standards Assurance and Federal and State Monitoring processes/procedures pursuant to Act 1181 of 2015, an act to promote efficiency in reporting by a school district or public school.

During the 2015-2016 school year, ADE will develop new desk auditing processes/procedures, streamline on-site monitoring processes/procedures, develop new on-site monitoring tools, and develop a consolidated on-site monitoring cycle. ADE will also consult with and seek input from district and school level personnel.

A list of districts scheduled to receive on-site monitoring during the 2015 – 2016 school year will be posted on the ADE website at http://www.arkansased.gov/divisions/public-school-accountability/standards-assurance-monitoring. Districts will also be notified by certified mail outlining the areas/items to be monitored.

Prior to the 2016-2017 school year, ADE will provide technical assistance to districts regarding the new desk audit and on-site processes/procedures. A consolidated four-year cycle for on-site monitoring for the 2016-2017 school year will be posted on the ADE website.
