The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is pleased to announce the release of a new website in the form of ADE Quick Links. The website is available at http://adequicklinks.arkansas.gov.

The ADE Quick Links website is equipped with quick launch-pads and shortcuts for Department’s important data and information related web tools as listed below and has Mobile and Tablet View compatibility functionalities.

ADE Quick Links Modules:

  • ADE Commissioner’s Memo
  • ADE Staff Directory
  • School District Information
  • ADE Data Center
  • StudentGPS Dashboard
  • School Personnel Directory
  • Statewide Information System
  • Arkansas Student Intervention System
  • Standards – Curriculum Framework Documents

The Department is constantly providing enhancements to the above items by making them compatible with mobile and tablet viewing. ADE Commissioner’s Memo and School District Information (LEA Information) already have mobile and tablet view compatibility options with today’s release. Additionally, the ADE Commissioner’s Memo System now has the search keyword ability to search the body of memos. School Personnel Directory and ADE Staff Directory will be next applications to follow-on.

School Administrators are encouraged to keep the School Personnel Directory information updated in APSCN by directing their district's APSCN/SIS Cycle Coordinator accordingly.

Arkansas Student Intervention System, StudentGPS Dashboard and Statewide Information System launch pad information have been added to ADE Quick links to provide a quick information guide for the systems. For logging-on to these systems, please continue to use the regular website links using Internet Explorer web browser.
