2016-17 Arkansas School Performance Reports
For the first time, the Arkansas School Performance Reports include a school's state accountability score and resulting letter grade. The accountability score is a calculation developed in response to the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. It takes into account student achievement and improvement on the ACT Aspire tests as well as graduation rates and other factors. The grading scale varies. For example, the lowest A for a high school is a score of 75.4; for a middle school, it's 78.37; and for an elementary school, it's 80.35.
