The Arkansas Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation (referred to as "Division") has been identified as the primary point of contact by the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) to the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) with regard to notifying school districts when an emergency has been declared. This emergency status is determined by ADEM and the Division's responsibility initially lies with immediate notification to any affected school district and any special instructions from ADEM.
The Division has home and cell telephone numbers of superintendents, as reported on Arkansas Public School Computer Network (APSCN). The Division is interested in obtaining the name, work, home and cell telephone numbers of any other person designated as the school district's emergency contact in the event that contact has to be made while school is not in session.
Response to this request is optional. The Division will use the emergency information as provided by APSCN unless districts designate another point of contact.
School districts wishing to designate an emergency point of contact may do so by submitting the information in paragraph 2 to Doug.email@example.com.
