Equitably Transform Learning for Every Student

Forward strives to ensure that every student in Arkansas receives the tools, resources and opportunities to succeed and thrive in today’s world. To achieve this reality for all students, we empower schools, districts and communities to work together to design and implement transformative and equitable student learning experiences and opportunities. 

Forward provides direct programs and leverages expert partners to guide and support local stakeholders as they determine their vision for student learning based on their local needs and context. We focus on three key areas to drive and sustain progress: (1) structures and resources, (2) teaching and learning, and (3) school culture. Through these efforts, we seek to identify and develop innovative, effective strategies that can be scaled statewide to impact learning for all Arkansas students.
