2019 ESSA School Index and Accountability At-A-Glance Reports Released
On October 9, 2019, the Arkansas Department of Education’s Division of Elementary and Secondary Education released the 2019 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) School Index and Accountability At-A-Glance reports for public viewing on My School Info https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov. These reports include data from the 2018-2019 school year, including 2019 ACT Aspire results.
The Accountability At-A-Glance provides an overview of each school’s rating or letter grade (state accountability) and an overview of the ESSA School Index score for all students and subgroups of students (federal accountability). This quick overview can be found on the My School Info page under the School Rating tab.
The ESSA School Index (federal accountability) includes students’ weighted achievement and growth on state required assessments for grades three through ten, graduation rates, and school quality and student success indicators. In addition, the report includes three-years of trend data on numerous indicators for student subgroups. The complete ESSA School Index can be found on the My School Info page under the Report Card tab.
