2014: All schools in the Pottsville School District are fully accredited through the Arkansas Department of Education. Pottsville School District continues to meet Average Yearly Progress as required by the Arkansas Department of Education for benchmark and EOC testing scores. The target Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for Pottsville School District and our schools have been set at high levels because of our consistently high student performance. Consequently, Pottsville School District is classified as a Needs Improvement District (AMO target in literacy and math). Pottsville High School, Pottsville Jr. High, Pottsville Middle Grades, and Pottsville Elementary are classified as Needs Improvement Schools: High School (AMO target in Literacy); Junior High Schools (AMO target in Math); Middle Grades (AMO target in Math); and Elementary (AMO target in Literacy). According to ADE, a "Needs Improvement" status should not be associated with school improvement status. It simply means the school missed one or more targets (as indicated) under the new accountability system. School leaders and teachers are analyzing the data to find out which students are not making their gains and developing teaching and learning strategies to help each student achieve.
All Pottsville School District teachers and paraprofessionals are highly qualified and (teachers) licensed to teach in Arkansas and meet the District’s strict hiring guidelines. If you have questions regarding the professional qualifications of your child's teachers or paraprofessionals, you are encouraged to contact your child’s principal.
