As administrators, you have likely had interaction with the Arkansas Department of Education on various levels and have a general understanding of the programs offered. But you may not always know where to look for information about those programs. We've tried to provide links of interest to administrators on the right, such as to department Rules. If you can't find what you need, check the alphabetical program index or type in a keyword for a search. As always you are welcome to contact us at the department. We are here to provide leadership and assistance for schools throughout Arkansas.
