Systems & Policies

All school districts have sufficient funding and use resources in a way that most effectively supports student success. Policies enable the implementation of recommendations needed for Arkansas to become a leading state in education.

  • Streamline the regulatory burden (on teachers and administrators, educator prep programs, ADE) to enable a focus on instruction, encourage innovation, and support a mindset shift from compliance to excellence.
  • Improve district capabilities to make decisions based on evidence of educational impact.
  • Over time, increase funding to support educational excellence, tying incremental increases to evidence of effective resource use.
