Arkansas Instructional Guidance for Extended Year AMI

It is extremely important that during this extended closure of our schools, there is a continuation of equitable educational delivery to the students of Arkansas. As Arkansas continues to strive to meet our vision of leading the nation in student focused education, there has never been a time more important than now to act on that vision  the Arkansas Instructional Guidance for Extended Year AMI.

Arkansas AMI 

The Division of Secondary and Elementary Education and Arkansas PBS have partnered to support teachers, families, and students by providing Arkansas AMI Learning Guides associated with PBS educational programming. Beginning March 30, Arkansas PBS will alter its regular television programming to provide age-appropriate educational content for three specific grade bands (PK-2, 3-5, 6-8). The Arkansas AMI Learning Guides have been developed to support home-based instruction in association with the PBS educational television programs to promote activities that students and families may use to practice existing skills, learn new topics, and interact with one another in a meaningful way.
