Teacher Support and Development

Believing that all students should have equal access to excellent educators, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is committed to its vision of leading the nation in student-focused education by attracting, preparing, developing, and retaining effective educators.  As defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), an effective teacher is a teacher who, through training and experience (more than 3 years of teaching), exemplifies the state’s teaching standards as demonstrated by consistently high-performance ratings within a state-approved evaluation and support system that includes multiple measures of student growth.
