Equitable Access to Effective Educators
Arkansas' Plan for Equitable Access to Excellent Educators
The Arkansas Department of Education's Equitable Access to Excellent Educators (EAEE) Plan, which has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education, was developed to address long-term needs for improving access to excellent Arkansas teachers and leaders.
To begin this process in an informed way, ADE reviewed current policies and initiatives that Arkansas has been implementing in recent years as well as relevant and available data using the equity plan readiness/planning tool provided by Equitable Access Support Network (EASN). This review was conducted in collaboration with the Cross Functional Implementation Team (CFIT) at ADE and led by the Equitable Access Core Group (EACG). The diagram below is the theory of action that guides our work.
