The 2008 Arkansas School Performance Report will be published March 12, 2009. The data currently on the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) databases, previously submitted by individual districts, will be used.
The 2008 Annual School Performance Report Card data will be available for viewing only from January 7 through January 20, 2009. Information may be viewed privately on the NORMES Website as shown below. Please review the statistical information for accuracy.
If the information for a school or district is not correct as indicated, changes in the data may be requested by contacting Dr. Charity Smith at Charity.Smith@arkansas.gov and copy Denise Airola, email@example.com. Requested changes must be accompanied by supporting documentation. This documentation should include the source of the correct information and, if appropriate, the calculations used to determine the new data value. If the information is incorrect due to a data entry problem on Arkansas Public School Computer Network (APSCN), the original data should be submitted along with the correct data. Changes must be approved by the superintendent of the affected school district.
ADE will begin reviewing requests for corrections starting the eighth of January. All requests for corrections to the information must be received at the ADE by 5:00 p.m. on January 20, 2009. No corrections will be made if the data are received after January 20.
