The website of the Arkansas Department of Education features a variety of information on numerous education services provided to the 468,000 public school students throughout Arkansas. It has been re-designed with major emphasis placed on helping users find the information they are looking for in a timely manner. A revamped search function and an alphabetical topics index has been added, to offer assistance with searches. However, if you can't locate the data that you need, the Office of Communications will be happy to help you navigate your way throughout the site.
Communications also seeks to reach out to school officials and the general public through Facebook, Twitter and the Department's blog — ADE Briefs. Please "like" the ADE and help spread the good word about the exemplary work of educators and students throughout Arkansas.
